round felted coasters?
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. 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".

Arg! I am going to have to take the time to sit down and figure this picture posting thing out.

Kelly, did you end up doing the felted coaster projects with your seniors? And if so, how'd it go? :D

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