Another milestone-2500th post today 

Lots of double zeroes and double letter o on this 2500th blog post. Thanks for looking. 

Potholder loops -in the details

On the loom and off 

Laura’s wreath prompted inquiry- what exactly are potholder loops?

 Take a hot pot lid off without burning your hand. Good deal! Keep cool.


Stretch the cotton loop snd attach to the teeth of the metal loom.Create a pattern or random colored loops.

(you can get wool or nylon loops, too, the nylon material not so effective on hot pots! 


Today Laura made this potholder by carefully planning the order of the loops 

Reminiscent of watermelon by Laurs Use pencils or knitting needles to catch all the loops, remove from the loom and bind off 

Here was Laura’s wreath in case you missed it 

Potholder Loop Wreath 

My daughter Laura sorted the giant bag of colorful potholder loops on the dining room table. I photographed it with the iPhone. 

 We’re in crafty production this week!

Maura brought them with her from Columbus for her visit to Grandma’s house. 


When the potholder is all woven, I slip 4 unsharpened pencils through the loops on all sides.  So much easier to finish up with a crochet hook, a loop at a time. 

 Taking the woven piece off the loom keeps it together instead of it trying to pop off the metal loom as you bind off.
