This blog is about the ups and downs in the life of an infertile couple as they strive to create their family. Nieces and nephews abound and are dearly loved, but sons and daughters are much harder to come by and strongly desired.

I wanted to make some coasters out of dishcloth cotton, because the purchased coasters that we already own were not quite up to the job in the current heat. They'd keep the water off of the surface, but only until it pooled up enough to spill over the edge - something that was happening frequently even with my "thirsty" sandstone coasters. So, I decided to make some coasters that could be used alone or in conjunction with another coaster. The result is exactly what I wanted.
My set of four coasters
The only downside was that I ran out of yarn when I was working on the border of the last coaster, so that one has a different look.
