Pot holders are used to protect your counters and tables from burn marks when setting a hot pot of food down, plus they help you grab hot stuff in the oven. But they are always plain and boring. Why not geek things up with a crocheted Spock holder?
Burn marks on your stuff are highly illogical and besides, the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few, live long and prosper, etc. By the time this pot holder has been in service for say, five years, it will start to look like Spock from the end of Wrath of Khan. All battered and food stained, but not dying in engineering.
It was made by Flickr user Kailand and would be a great addition to any kitchen. If only she had created enough for all of us.
