The Bernat yarn folks are doing a Crochet-Along this fall. Starting on September 1, anyone who wants to participate can go to the Bernat Blog and get the starting block. There's only 1 catch -- the pattern is a mystery. We have to solve clues to figure out the pattern and then create the blocks. I think the only thing we get to decide is the colors. We can pick any colors we like. Oooh... What colors shall I pick. May be I'll go for some really bright colors? May be I'll stick to variegated skeins. Who knows. I can't wait to see where this project leads me.

One of these days I'm going to pick a more appropriate place to take my photos. The colors look so awful. Either that or I'm going to have to start using my digital camera instead of my iPhone to take the photos.
I will post more pictures as this project progresses.

Here are some photos of the gold one. It's hard to tell the pattern with a single colored yarn. I think I like making this type of potholder with a combo-type yarn.
This is my favorite pattern for this two-sided potholder -- Double Diagonal Hotpad
