Years ago there was a Guinness commercial that we loved and still quote to this day...it ends with the line "A coaster - Brilliant!".
So, what does this have to do with this blog post? The other day I was thinking about the first scarf I wove and how I would never wear it as it was just too stiff.
Then I had a thought - why not felt the scarf and cut it into 4x4 squares with my rotary cutter and turn it into coasters?
There is a woman in one of my class who makes Chanukah gifts every year - she saw these and was inspired for this year's gift. I had to explain to her they were not knit - they are woven. Don't think she'll fall down that rabbit hole but she might try knitting and felting some.
I had 3 coasters leftover - I put them out on the coffee table and my husband took such a shine to them he retired the other ones we had been using. Guess that is a success story right there.
