According to the NY Times, coasters are the hot new home accessory. Who'd have thunk?
The gist of the article is that with the rise of Etsy, coasters have become a "thing" for artists and makers to sell via their on-line shops. The popularity of cocktails has also added to the renewal of this old-fashioned tabletop accessory. I think coasters are the perfect touch for a tabletop. They also make a nice wedding or shower gift.
I suppose I was ahead of the curve with my Swirly Twirly knit and felted coaster pattern. It is a great stash-busting project and includes several different Home Dec accessories. My Swirly Twirly pattern available on my website here or on Ravelry here.
It is a beautiful spring day here at the farm. Green should be happening soon. It is still rather bleak as you can see in the photo I took last night as the sun was setting. Hope you enjoy your day wherever you are.
