"Cacti are happy, bright, summery, and fun - so Crochet Cactus Potholders are perfect for your kitchen! These thick squishy crocheted hot pads make great trivets too! The key to the Crochet Cactus Potholders is to use 100% cotton yarn - Red Heart Scrubby Smoothie! With cotton yarn, you can use these Cacti with hot dishes without worrying about melting your project on your next hot dish. The Crochet Cactus Potholders are a set - there’s a tall cactus and a ball cactus, both kitchen ready. But they aren’t limited to being just potholders! The tall cactus also would make a great oven mitt if you sew two of them together. And the Ball Cactus would be super cute under a real flower pot! However you use them, they are sure to brighten up your table."

One of my favorite cousins and her husband just retired and moved from the Monterey Bay area to the deserts of Tucson, AZ. Ill be seeing her in a few months, and wanted to send her a small housewarming gift. These potholders are just perfect and I know theyll appreciate the gesture (and the joke). They love the desert and couldnt wait to get back there.
