I absolutely adore the look of crochet. While I know how to crochet, it's not something that I do well. For some reason I always seem to have one more stitch than I'm supposed to. However, when I saw these adorable coasters on this blog on Friday, I just couldn't resist attempting them.
I have to say I am not a fan of the Martha Stewart yarn - I find it a pain to work with but after switching to a bamboo hook, it was less of a pain. I'm persevering because I adored the colors in the original photos. I will definitely look for an alternative though because I think these would make a really cute gift. Now I just need to see if I can master the basket!
