Here in North Carolina, it's warm enough that my drinks are all sweating ...profusely. Since the puddles are annoying, I made a few coasters.  They're really easy, just two rounds, and are great stash-busters!  Pattern's on the blog and Ravelry, but it's a really simple pattern.  (I got the name from wiki-ing the list of Crayola colors and choosing the closest catchy one..)

Laying around:


And in use:


Thanks!

Here in North Carolina, it's FINALLY warm enough, you mean.
All that dang rain. Tut tut. Tongue

I love that color, and your flowers came out perfect. I think it's funny that you wiki'd crayola colors to help you name these, that's actually not a bad idea.

Is this the tawashi flower??

I make them all the time for facial scrubbies out of white cotton yarn,  I love them.  They have taken the place of cotton balls here. 

I didn't think about using them as coasters...hmmmmmmm mm......

hmm.. I really have no idea if it's the same pattern...  It could definitely be one, though!  When I was looking through Ravelry, I saw a ton of different methods of getting this same basic flower shape.
