Coaster Crazy

I've been in a crochet mood lately. I made some placemats recently. That was a lot of fun! I've been going through patterns I've collected and searching through Ravelry for other things that I think would be fun to make. My friend, Judy, recently mentioned the idea of making coasters. That sounded like a lot of fun! I found some on Ravelry that inspired me. These are what I've come up with so far...


They're super quick and so much fun to make. I think it'll be fun to have a set with various designs. They'll make perfect resting spots for hot cups of tea, coffee and toddys, and cold drinks too. Not to mention, providing little spots of color. Color makes me smile! And, I get to use some of my favorite yarn, Sugar N Cream.

Karen hit the nail on the head but I'll add they look fun too! Have a great weekend with your coasters whether making or using them!

Those came out great! Love them!! (I admit I was a bit dubious when you started writing about crochet and coasters....but I love the result!)

I definitely look forward to warm weather & hanging out on the porch with iced tea and a coaster!! (I have months to wait though. So sad. Maybe I could learn to crochet by then!)
