And then--I made one for me, just to match. Like our lens mugs?
The coasters love each others' company! I'd hate to tear them away from each other when I go back to California in just under two weeks' time, so they'll stay to cushion Jason's mugs here in England. I'll look forward to our visits when I have enough saved up to come back. :]
For anyone interested, here's the simple pattern to make your own. It uses less than 25 yards of any leftover worsted weight yarn you have lying around. I worked this with 4.5mm needles.
Cast on 22 stitches.
Work 30 rounds of Seed Stitch.
If you'd like a neat slip stitch edge, slip the first stitch of each row purlwise, and knit the last stitch of each row.
Bind off, and weave in.
