Blog Worthy

Blog Worthy

If you are a little kid growing up in a household that blogs you learn 2 things very early:

First, how to ignore cameras, and second,

to assess the “blog worthiness” of everything you do. It isn’t necessarily a standard you want your children to adopt, but it kinda goes with the territory. So often, they hear the adults in their life say, “This is blog worthy” when they’ve made a yummy dessert, crafted an impromptu project, or observe the wee ones doing something remarkable. (And with wee ones, what isn’t remarkable?)

The other morning, when Fairy came over and gave me this beautiful coaster she just finished knitting for me and said, “Gammy, you can put that on the blog if you want to.”

Well… not only is the coaster blog worthy, it deserves a tutorial. So here it is 🙂

Fairy’s Knit Coaster

Finished size: Mine is 4 1/2″ to 5″ by 4 1/4″ – Rather looks like a few extra stitches were added along the way, but it just makes it more creative and beautiful 🙂

Materials:
worsted weight wool
size 8 needles

Directions:
Cast on 20ish stitches.

Knit 20 rows or as many as you need to make it “square-ish”.

Bind off.

Then, give it to your Gammy or anyone else you love, and know that they will treasure it always!

Thank you so much, Fairy. Gammy loves you to the moon and back!

BTW… The Gnome Love coffee mug is available HERE at our Cafe Press Shop.

  1. Tell Fairy I love her coaster and I want to make one. Beautiful yarn, too.

  2. What a little darling! I’ll have to show both my son and my daughter, maybe I’ll have a few extra coasters this afternoon.

  3. I’ve always wondered how people get their kids to take such good photos. I pull out my camera and the kids head for the hills or make goofy faces or stop doing what they were doing that I wanted to take their picture of! I guess the secret is to take more pics! Excellent job, Fairy. I love the coaster.

  4. Dear Fairy
    My children are 7 and 9 years old and have just learned to knit so this is the perfect tutorial for their next project! (they’ve been knitting all of their dolls and stuffed toys scarves!) Thank you so much for sharing your idea. I love this idea as their Daddy has tea time every day (he is British), so coasters are always handy to have!
    Keep up the knitting, hope to see more of your projects on Gammy’s blog! ;o)
    xoxo
