I spent my spare minutes over the last couple days crocheting a pot holder for the door of the rocket cooktop, which we have discovered gets quite hot. I used some gorgeous naturally-dyed yarn that Judith Browning very kindly sent to Wheaton Labs, which Paul & Jocelyn were sweet enough to allow me to use. Unfortunately, the door got a lot hotter than expected, and charred the potholder almost instantaneously! Luckily, the charring was on the wrong side, so the right side (the “front”) still looks good, and can be used for actual pot handles. I may need welding gloves for the door!
Nicole, I actually don’t think it was cotton. I don’t know for sure, but it feels like wool to me, despite the fact that it burned, which normally doesn’t happen too easily with wool. It’s definitely not acrylic.
It's painfully obvious that I'm over 20 years out of practice. It's ugly, but it will get the job done. Despite thinking I gave enough extra at the start, it wnded up less than 10 wide, so I gave up the perfect square to ensure the same total volume of stitches.
