2 FO's

The Raised Diamond mat is off the needles.  It has a nice garter stitch border around the edges, so I'm not sure I need a crocheted edge.  However, I still have just enough yarn left that I could put an edge on if I change my mind.

This Juniper needle-felted wool mat was started sometime in December for a class I taught, but I didn't finish it.  So, yesterday seemed like a good day to get the project off my to-do list. 

Yesterday was simply too cold and dreary to be outside!  I even started a fire in the wood stove to take off the chill in the house.  Oh Spring, thou art fickle!


  1. He raised diamonds stitch is pretty. I'll have to remember that one.

    Yesterday was, indeed, chilly! He wind was blowing off of the snowy mountains. Brrrr!

  2. I love the berries on your Juniper Mat. Too cute.

    Congrats on both finishes. I don't think your knit mat NEEDS an edge, unless you really want one on there.

  3. love your mats! the felted one is so intriguing!!!
    we are cold inside today; damp and rainy outside. I need a microwave wrap to warm me up

  4. Very pretty mat! How'd you make the juniper berries? That's very pretty also.

  5. We started a fire, too! That juniper mat is very, very pretty.
