My mother very drily pointed out that these oven towels have been around for a long time. Yes, Mom, I've been seeing these ugly terrycloth things cutesied up with ducks and hearts and whatnot for a long time. These towels are very practical. But mine is DIFFERENT! It's hip and vintage-sweet. You'll see, Mom: I'll make more and maybe I'll even give you one (gasp). You don't have Williamsburg blue and geese in your kitchen any more, hallelujah, so I'll make you a cool oven towel.
