This simple coaster can be made by a crochet beginner, yet is still nice enough for an advanced crocheter to make as well. It is a single crochet square made in rows, with a border around it. There is a video and chart to help, making this a great learning project.

These coasters work very nicely with my Stripy Single Crochet Placemat

Happy Day

{ 2 comments }

I had a very nice day today! I will share with you in a moment, but first I want to share a few snaps I took yesterday. When I was at Rhinebeck on Sunday, Doug and the girls decorated the house for Halloween.

Spooky-door-2014

Here is a close up of the front door.

Spooky-house-2014

And the front of the house in all it’s spookiness!

Kyla's-hopscotch

Yesterday afternoon the girls made some art out back. This is a portrait of Kyla in her Elsa Halloween costume, standing over a hopscotch board.

Ready-to-hop

Ready to hop!!

 

So…Today. After dropping the kids at school, I drove over to do some grocery shopping. Just as I was pulling into a parking spot, “Pour Some Sugar On Me” came on the radio. I turned the volume all the way up and sat in the parking lot for the next few minutes.

Then, as I was almost home, “Livin On A Prayer” came on. So I ended up sitting in my driveway for a few minutes.

After unpacking the groceries, I headed downstairs to get some work done.

Making-Videos

I made a series of videos for a new Stitchopedia post. I think a lot of you will find it very useful! It took quite some time to record all the videos, and I still have to edit them all. However, I hope to have it done by the end of the week, or the beginning of next at the latest.

New-Yarn-to-Play-with

Just as I was leaving to pick up the girls, I noticed a package in the mail. It was this super fun yarn! I have a great pattern in mind for you. :)

It was starting to rain, so I drove to pick up the girls, and “Kashmir” came on. It’s two for Tuesday, so after “Kashmir” there was another Led Zeppelin song: “What Is and What Should Never Be“. It was a very good music day!! It also made me realize I really need to finish organizing the basement and get a working radio down there so I can listen to music more. I always worked better in my costume shop when I had Q104.3 on, and I am sure the same will be true here. See, logical reason to rock out.

After dinner I ran downstairs to block a new design I have been working on.

Coming-Soon

You are really going to love this one!!

Rhinebeck 2014!

{ 1 comment }

What a fabulous weekend!! I spent all day Sunday at the Rhinebeck Sheep and Wool Festival. I’ll tell you about that in a moment, but first I want to share a photo from Saturday.

Out-to-dinner-for-Daddy's-birthday

Doug’s birthday was on Thursday, but the girls only got to see him for an hour. They wanted to really celebrate his birthday, so we had a Daddy’s Birthday Day on Saturday. We went out for frozen yogurt, to a movie, then out to dinner. The girls love those coloring mats at the restaurants!

Sunday morning I got up bright and early and drove into the City to pick up my friend Claire (we’re both admins for the Knitting Facebook group) and 2 of her friends. It was the first time I have met Claire in person, and she was as fabulous as I thought she would be! Then it was a nearly 2 hour drive up to Rhinebeck. I am just going to share some photos with you, with only a bit of text.

We're-Here

Here are Claire and Tracy when we first arrived.

This-was-just-too-cute

This little booth was just too cute not to photograph!

Octopus-gloves

One look at the mitten on the left and I thought “Moogly!!”

Look-at-all-the-colors

Oh the colors! All the pretty colors!!

Rainbow

Tracy bought a whole rainbow of colors.

Look-Yarn

Yarn!!

Get-me-out-of-here

This guy (or gal, not really sure) was really trying to make a break for it.

I-have-no-idea

I have no idea. We walked into this barn with a family doing some awfully silly things with Llamas. We were thoroughly confused.

Llama

Here is a better shot of a Llama!

band

There was some live music.

our-haul

We really had a wonderful day. So much yarn. So much fun.

our-haul-in-Thor

Here is our haul, packed into Thor and ready to go!

My-food-and-drink-goodies

In addition to all the sheep, yarn, and everything in between, there was also a lot of food and wine. I picked up a some tasty treats!

My-yarn-goodies

And here is my haul!! I have some great ideas of what to do with all of it.

I hope you all had a fun weekend as well!
