Who's is who's and which is which

Well I did it. I not only bought the yarn I needed to finish that watermelon pot holder but I actually finished it.

Can you tell which is the one my friend bought for me and which is the one I made?

If you guess that mine is the one on the bottom or to the right then you're right. This one actually came out slightly smaller but not by much. I wasn't sure if it's because of the size hook I used or because I tend to crochet a bit on the tight side.

I thought I would try another one with a larger hook.
And then there were three.



The larger hook did the trick. It came out exactly the same size as the original one.

Very cute! Is it double thick? I think they would make very cute gifts. :)

Was it you or Wade who took a sliver out of the middle of that one on the upper right?

Wow! Beautiful work xx

Hi Ann,I think both of yours look as great as the first but I did know which you had done as I counted the seeds...it's a following pattern on the bought one and yours are more random. Of course this means yours is better as seeds are randomly set inside the watermelon!!

they are all three beautiful and oh so 'handy'. get it? HA HA HO HO

How cute! Funny how everyone is just a little bit different tension-wise. I used to crochet way too tightly and everything was always a lot smaller.
I've eased up quite a bit, so now everything winds up slightly bigger. Nothing like that elusive Goldilock's goal, is there? (you know: not too tight, not too loose; juuuuust right ;o) *laugh*

Oh I would definitely buy a few of those. If you are going to do craft fairs again this year you most definitely need a bunch of those. Definitely!

I really enjoy these Ann.

Those are terrific, big or small hook. They would make great gifts. I still say, you should have an Etsy shop. But it is more fun just to do it when you feel like it. Have a great Sunday.

It would have been easier to tell yours apart from the first one if you used red instead of maroon since you totally mastered it on your first try! You are so talented Ann!

That looks great. I seemed to have peaked at the granny square as I can`t seem to progress any further. x

I love these Ann! They would brighten up any kitchen!

Rose said...

So cute! They will be so much fun to use.

LOVE those!

Ann, I LOVE these!!!!

DebbieM said...

Totally awesome, Ann. They look just like the original one. You are speeding away at making things for the show in Aug, guess what, I have nothing made, and I mean zero. Either I will have to get busy, or I'll be just there to help you sell your things. I have absolutely no time to do anything crafty. Keep up the good work.

Donna said...

I HONESTLY could not tell!!!
Great job Ann!!
