Ultimate Book of Potholders

Today's mail brought another eBay purchase, the Ultimate Book of Potholders, so this evening I listened to a PBS special on music of the 60's and made a hot pad. The pattern is a rectangle with a heart, it was done in single crochet, made with a graph. So, of course, I did it in Tunisian crochet. I think this is my first project made with a graph. I feel a little more confident about tackling those picture afghans. The one I really want to do is bluebells and bluebirds.
I purchased this book mainly for some scalloped hotpads. My Mother-in-Law was recently showing me some that were made by her mother, or aunt; and she loves to use them. So I thought I might make her more in the same pattern. The pattern in the book uses worsted weight cotton, but MIL's were done in thread, possibly #3 or #5. Will look at colors available next time I'm at one of the yarn places I frequent.
