Those who are Guilder Alumni reading this - am I the only one that really thinks the ones with the blue on the outside looks like it belongs on a Guilder costume? LOL not sure why I think that on one but not the other but I see what I see :o)
I didn't have all 3 colors in cotton for these, so the Red and Blue are RHSS and the white is the speckled ILTY with the silver thread. Really adds something extra to them!
Set #2 are not quite finished yet (as you can see, I've left my "favorite" part yet to do!). I actually made these ones first because the cotton was close by. One of the veregated ones I tried to use a magic circle on thinking I could get the center hole smaller. The whole is just as big regardless and it actually made the coaster a bit "flimsy". Now I know. The plan is to have these finished up and wrapped to give my Mom while I'm home over the weekend. She was here this past weekend and has already seen them, but it'll be a surprise for her none the less!
I got to work this a.m. and ordered some veregrated R-W-B IKTY from Hobby Lobby and then loads of cotton in new shades (well new to me) from JoAnns so I can continue to produce these! I don't think I've ever made 8 of anything without hating that I was stilling making them so I I think I'll keep going and stock up on gifts for use throughout the year!
As for my other crochet-a-long that I mentioned last week, here's my progress on my ripple:
ripple pattern. This is also a perfect example of starting with a pattern on find in a blog, and frogging it to use a pattern I'm more comfortable with! Pammy Sue yours that you posted looks great, and the pattern makes sense to me, but I was crocheting too slow trying to remember what I was doing, which was just about enough to drive me crazy! :-P
