I had a lovely piece of felted fabric that began life as a test of gauge for Brian's vest and I used to use it as a pad for my coffee thermos on one of the jobs I worked on.
Since then, it has been floating here and there and was more in the way than it was ever used.
Most of my tables are wood and I want to keep them in good shape if I can. I have been using cork coffee coasters but if the cup is the least little bit damp or sweating on the bottom, the cork sticks to the cup. When you take a sip, the coasters ride along and more often than not, ends up in your lap. Irritating.
It occurred to me that I like felted coasters and they never ever cling to a coffee cup and that this large and generally useless piece of felted knitting could be cut into nice coaster sized sections.
So I did.
Its silly how much resolving such a small irritation pleases me.
