Today is the 80th birthday of Anne Frank, the Jewish girl from Frankfurt that lived hidden with her familiy and some friends in a rear building in Amsterdam until they were found by Gestapo and deported to death camps. Her father was the only one who survived, and when he came home, he found Annes diary. It was published and is still a memorial to all of us to be attentive that a Holocaust will never recur.
RIP Anne, you gave us all so much. In silent memory U.

..are some kind of an experiment. I wanted to use up all my rests of potholder-yarn, so I connected them by using the methodrussian join. Mixed with a solid color it made these practical kitchen-equipment.
Well, the yarn is not that much appropriate for this purpose, since it devides easily and without cutting off some threads, it is too thick.
A good experience to get familiar with the procedure.
