Mr. Aitch and I planned to visit Charleston, South Carolina this week.
Unfortunately, Hurricane Florence decided we didn’t need to be there now.
So we’ll try it again another time.
These coasters coördinate with the colors in the chairs I reupholstered last year and since I LOVE those colors together, I had to add to my yarn stash. Right?
Beach Glass (cool blue) and Robin’s Egg Blue (warm blue) were too close together in color to use as a contrast in one coaster so they will be kept separate.
One coaster takes about two hours to knit. I have made some larger sizes but the five-inch coaster is so quick…plus I don’t have to count as much as a larger one.
I goofed and used a larger needle than suggested so my first coaster (the purple and yellow one) was larger than the others. And even with the correct needle size, mine still ended up a half-inch larger than the pattern/gauge. What can I say? I must knit looser.
