I know I saw them somewhere, but I can't remember where!

As I have now spun some yarn, I'm trying to find lil' projects to do with it. And these coasters would be perfect as a gift for my aunt and her family who are going to have a "we-now-have-our-own-house"-party.
Plus felting would hide my beginners yarn imperfections :rollseyes:

Thanks! That's what I've been searching for.
But after a bit of testing I think I'll crochet the coasters and make them rectangular. The yarn is just too bulky for anything else.

I crocheted mine, only I did them in the round. I absolutely love the way they turned out. I didn't really follow any particular color pattern, just changing colors on rows at whim, but they turned out so very cool. The really neat thing is how well they work, too. :thumbsup: I keep one at my computer desk for my coffee. I made it a little larger than normal, as I drink out of an oversized mug. I made the others normal sized for tea glasses, and they really do absorb the moisture.

I used tapestry wool for mine. I found several skeins at Salvation Army for about 20 cents a skein. They were very 70'ish colors, and my ds's girlfriend told me my coasters look very "retro". :mrgreen:

I'm sure that with you doing the running dialogue, it will be almost as entertaining for them as if they were there! :rofling:
