I don't know if you remember those plastic square pot holder looms from when you were a child? I remember mine - I used to spend hours weaving those little loopers back and forth and proudly giving my creations away to anyone I could find who would take them.
Imagine my happiness and surprise when I found out Hilary had designed her own potholder looms using recycled sock starts from a sock mill. I love the way she designed a solution to something that would normally be thrown away and upcycled it into something functional.
I couldn't resist ordering one and I've been looping it along ever since. First, a large, thick, cushy potholder perfect for hot pans. Next, a variation woven on every other nail both directions to make a softer, smaller size perfect for a mug rug, that's currently keeping my tea hot. And another mug rug started and just waiting to be woven off.
My brain is churning with the possibilities! What colors do you think I should do next?? =)
