Oh, I just can’t resist the lure of instant-gratification home decor projects. This week that has translated into an additional four table toppers from the book I reviewed here.
I’m liking these. They’re great for setting down a coffee mug (on our new tables! I have to show you those later). I realized that I made a few incorrectly – you are supposed to hold a double strand of yarn. So I made one that way, and then I made another with just one strand and a smaller hook. So there’s a bit of variety here, and they are all made from stash worsted weight cottons.
While coffee mugs are no problem, these table toppers are not going to be particularly effective for cold, sweaty drinks given all the holes. Fear not, though. My wheels are turning now and I wouldn’t be surprised if I have a set of proper coasters all hooked up by the end of the summer…
Now that this is out of my system (really? is it really out of my system? time will tell) I can get back to that darn shawl. 18 days left until I need it…

Thank you. I am enjoying them!
I know how you feel, I have just a week and a half to finish my mittens for the state fair & I’m itching to work on a crochet project instead.
I guess that’s just the way it goes with we crafty types, eh? I always get excited for the next new project, long before I’ve finished the old. Especially, if the old project is a long-term one. I have so little patience for projects that take more than a week, LOL!
