Purple coasters

I wanted to keep the momentum going from Tuesday’s practice, so I stitched up a set of the coasters with the proper yarn and hook. Each one got easier and faster to make and I was able to complete these in an evening after dinner.  For some reason one of them is a bit smaller than the others. (I have disguised that with the mug in the photo.)  I thought I was using the same tension on all of them, but perhaps as I got more comfortable with the stitches I relaxed a bit.

These may become my summer small project replacing dishcloths as a way to stitch up something quickly after completing a larger project. The pattern can be found on The Green Dragonfly’s blog, complete with illustrated step-by-step photos.  I love how lacy they look, but still have enough weight to do their duty under a damp glass.
