Christmas Coasters

It's not that far away anymore! CHRISTMAS!!!  3 Days ago Scheepjes started a Christmas Bloghop

For 10 days they'll hop from blog to blog for inspiration and free patterns to keep you busy in this festive month!
Yesterday it was Jellina's turn, she made a tree garland check it out at jellina-creations.nl
Today it's mine and I made these colorful Christmas ball coasters to brighten up the dinner table by then.
The yarn I used is Larra by Scheepjeswol, it's a nice and very shiny 100% cotton, perfect for these Christmas items!
An other perfect yarn for this, is Catona by Scheepjeswol which is available in 69 colors, you can find them all in my shop here.


Hope you will enjoy this simple little project! I am very curious to see what Nerissa is sharing with us tomorrow,
