    Way to go! I absolutely love potholders and am making many for Christmas gifts myself. After dinner tonight, I will whip out a couple more! :-D

    They are great! I have made pot holders. They are not as easy as they look. Good job. Love that you are using your granny's treadle. Wonderful.

    Your pot holders are neat. I like the fact you put a loop on them so they can be hung. When I was a little girl there was a woman who lived near by that was mentally challenged. All she did was make potholders. The machine was her "car" and the thread was "gas". Everyone in town had her pot holders which were beautiful.

    These look really great. Thanks for the idea. Just hadn't thought to make my own round ones. But I will now.

    Thanks y'all! They were pretty easy once I actually started on them. The hardest part was getting myself going!
