My neighbor is one of those amazing people that NEVER forgets an occasion. I am lucky to remember the major holidays, let alone the Hallmark ones. Anyway, Milli is Irish and of course loves St. Patrick's Day. I know this is an important holiday to alot of people, but this is one that has always gotten lost to me between Christmas and Easter.
Last week I decided to do something unexpected for St. Patty's Day for Milli. She loves crafts and really appreciates handmade items. She has alot of green bowls, candles, leprechaun dolls, four-leafed clovers, placemats, tablecloths, wreaths, but I don't remember seeing any coasters. So I "googled" Shamrock Coasters. I found a pattern on Crochet Central that I liked. However, when I started crocheting it, I didn't like the look of the last round. I unraveled the yarn and thought I would make some dessert instead.
This afternoon I decided, NO, to the dessert and I started to crochet a coaster. When I came to the 4th round, I did one little change and Voila! I love it. These 4 Shamrock Coasters were made in about 2 hours. That is GREAT for me. What fun.
Next holiday..........Easter! Hmmmmmm, what shall I make?
