One thing leads to another

I've been away from a home a LOT lately!
It's hard to quilt and sew when traveling!
:)

It's not as hard to knit!
 
These little coasters are a special request.
 
The yarn was admired.
The idea to make coasters was put out there
after the young couple saw me working on dishcloths....
and...
I got to WORK!!!
 
These little coasters are a variation on
that OLD knitting pattern for dishcloths
 that's been around FORever!

The wedding is in August
and my daughter and soninlaw-to-be
LOVE these oceany...blue...green colors.
They also like homemade.
Makes this mama a HAPPY mama!

 

This photo needs some COFFEE!

  8. These are too cute. I started knitting these dishcloths a couple of years ago as practice and when I gave them away to family and friends everyone loved them. The coasters are a really great idea. I knit the dish cloths until I have 49 stitches and then start to decrease how many stitch before you start to decrease for the coasters?
