Enjoy cooking without burning your fingers!

What? It's the first day of February already? And I haven't featured all the projects I made for the Christmas holidays yet!!!! Oh my, how time flies! 

Last week, I posted about the Barefoot Sandals I made for the first time. Today, let me showcase the Pan Handle Cozy I made. I Googled for patterns from the web and found Rachel Choi's Double Thick Pot Handle Cozy from Crochet Spot. 

I was attracted to her magic words--- "double thick"! I like that because I don't want to get blisters on my hands while accidentally touching the pan handles while cooking. 

Here are the crocheted pan handles I made. 

Oh yes, I made two, using different patterns. I used the pattern from Crochet Spot to make the one on the left of the photo. The pattern was very simple and easy to follow. The only modification I made was not using double strand of yarn because the Ombre Sayelle knitting worsted type of yarn I used was already thick.

I will tell you the secret ;) in the making of the other one on the right. But that will be in another post. So please stay tuned for a secret to be revealed soon!

Oh, lest I forget... a friend just shared a SAFETY PRECAUTION against the cozy getting caught in fire while cooking or slipping off the handle while holding the pan. So it's literally cooking without burning any precious thing in your kitchen, especially your ten fingers. Afterall, there's always truth in the saying, "an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure"

How was your celebration of the Chinese New Year?

    1. Reviewing old posts, Astri, I realized I haven't replied to this. I haven't blogged for 6 months now, since my father got sick. It's been 2 years. Happy new year!
