Around xmas, I had a little accident involving one of my two glass coasters. You guessed it - the coaster is no more. I'd been thinking about making my own, but couldn't seem to find the right pattern. Crazy, right? I've only been knitting for about 30 years, so what do I need a pattern for?
Here is some 8ply handspun alpaca before ...
And after felting (by hand in the kitchen sink - hard work!)
Bit wonky around the edges, but I think they'll do the job.
Oh, and if you think using this alpaca seems like a waste? It's actually really scratchy. You would not want this next to your skin.
