More time to craft

As we are getting closer to the holidays, I seem to have more time to knit and crochet. I actually seem to be doing much more crochet at the moment.

So I have finished a few more coasters – this time larger ones for mugs and bottles.

Some time ago I have ordered 12 skeins of self striping cotton (Alize Bella Batik) to create a set of 10-12 placemates and coasters – each in a different stitch pattern, so that they are united by size and colour. The colours do not match too well our new appartment, but I still love them. I have by now finished three: in feather and fan, ripple and rectangular granny patterns. The granny one took the least yarn, and was the quickest and most pleasurable to make so far.

Also, in the holidays spirit, I crocheted a Christmas tree – I know it needs decorating, but I’m too lazy :(

I have also started a table runner for our coffee table – idea courtesy of my darling SO. It is inspired by this one, bus is knit diagonally, and only simple stripes, no diamonds:

Happy Holidays!

      Oh, Alize’s yarns are great for striping – very similar to Katia. Bella is also very soft, I love the touch of the table mats as we use them :)
