This past weekend I was a Madge's house for a lovely, craftastic get-together. Many knitters and crocheters were there, stitchin' away. I didn't realize it, but this is a group called Asknitters. They meet once a month. Everyone brought a dish to share. Madge and her DH, Tom supplied us with barbecued chicken, burgers and drinks. We had some marvelous salads, casseroles, desserts. People were knitting and crocheting sweaters, kitty beds, afghans, hats, shawls, etc. It was really a great party.
I wanted to bring Madge a small hostess gift. I'd never been to her house before, so I searched her blog for photos that would give me a clue as to the colors of her house. I spied some cream, cranberry and burgundy drapes and a burgundy couch in the background of one of her photos. Aha! Now I have a color combo I can work with!
I decided to crochet Madge a little cotton basket that holds six cotton coasters. I used kitchen cotton and a size "G" crochet hook.
They turned out great. They're not really summery; the color scheme is kinda' winter, so they would be perfect for the holiday season! Thanks again, Madge for a marvelous party.
