A WIP & Some FO's

Slow & steady wins the race. Isn't that the saying? Well its been slow & steady pace working on the blankie that Angus wanted. He said that he would love it if he could wrap himself up in it. I honestly don't know if I want to make it that big. It's very time consuming as it is. I'll just see how big it is once I have finished the 300g white ball & 300g of black. Hopefully that will make Angus happy. I am sure it will he's a pretty easy going kid.

Angus' blankie
There is one thing about his blanket that I wish I did differently and that is making the squares larger. Oh well it's too late to worry about that now.

coasters
Before I started the blanket I made up some coasters. They're flowers from the Crochet Bouquet book that I have but I believe they look great as coasters. They were really easy to make and took no time at all to finish. I was thinking that some really large circles or ovals using this style would look great as place mats. What do you think? Maybe that's a project for another day.

Thank you Poetess. I might just have to give the place mats a go after I have completed Angus' blanket :)
