A bit of nostalgia for my DT post

Hi all its My turn today and i have been a bit under the weather this week ending in having a actual day off on friday as felt so rough and not feeling much better today :(
Though i did spend the day on the sofa with the dog dozing in between phonecalls and the postman! not sure i am going to able today as we have a visitor for the weekend.
But anyway luckily i had finished my project and just needed the last touches.
So our theme this week over at StampnCraft is to use wool/yarn on our projects and this is my effort

It's a coaster

I had dug out my nan's french knitting tool which i had inherited along with her button tin (spent ages as a child playing with them) and spent the week when i had a few mins spare practising this skill which i hadnt done for ages!
loads of tutorials around if you google french knitting and even ones on how to make your own knitting tool but this was my finished length of knitting which i then stitched together.

I used a cardboard circle which i adhered to bottom of knitting which also covered up the stitches and then diecut a piece of felt using scalloped nestie which then went on the bottom of the card and there you have it a hand made wool coaster. Don't forget to see what the ladies have been doing this week and its Beth's turn tomorrow. I am off back to my bed. Kay,x
