Crochet Oven Mitts

!!!Post has been updated!!!
As I started crocheting again, my goal was to learn how to do granny squares and to be able to crochet the oven mitts my grandmother made. They are the best gloves to take out things from the oven, ´cause even though you are wearing gloves you still can feel what you are touching in an unburning way.
As my sister moved in to her new flat, I wanted to make her these as a move in present and now they are hanging in her kitchen window when not in use :)
Mine are OK, the one my grandmother made are way prettier and better crocheted. But it was such a nice feeling following her pattern and figuring out the changes she did to make them look better. So these are really from the heart.
I will be making more of these that is for sure, although I still can´t believe I made these :)

The pair on the picture was done using Debbie Bliss Eco Baby 100% Cotton. I recently finished another pair (see below), using a different kind of cotton for smaller needles.

On the right, is a potholder my grandmother made (painted)
On the left, potholders made by my mum (crochet)
and in the middle are my second crocheted oven mitts I made for my mum, using my grandmothers pattern. That´s pretty special don´t you think?
