Something New

Ever since crocheting the double-stranded stars, I've been on a double-stranded kick. For you non-crocheters, this means that instead of just using one ball of yarn, I've been using two at a time. Not only does it help me make a dent in my gigantic cotton yarn stash, but it allows me to choose fun colors and make new combinations. I made this large coaster one night, and have been building up quite the inventory ever since. I love the heft of the added thickness, and this size is perfect to use under pitchers, potted plants, or casseroles. Pretty protection for any surface! I'm about ready to start listing them in sosorosey... here's hoping people love them as much as I love making them.

This is so thick and pretty! I love the texture. I don't know anything about crocheting, but using two balls of yarn at once sounds hard to me. Well done!
