    Would anyone be interested in some cute potholders? I made this yesteday from a vintage pattern. It's supposed to be barred, if you haven't guessed. I can make them in any color requested. I'm thinking of altering the comb template to make it look more rooster-ish and more hen-ish. I can make a male/female couple, if desired.

    I'm also on the lookout for other vintage patterns. Some of the old stuff is just way too cute.

    Yes, that's my best impression of one. I was hoping it would come out looking more barred, but the varigation in the yarn changes as you make the rows longer and alter the stiches.

    Natural tones, as in chicken colors, or earth tones?
