Felted Coasters

I don’t generally felt knitted objects. At least not on purpose! I’ve wondered for a long time why that is, but now I know.  I fear giving up control over my yarn. Once it is felted, I can’t repurpose the yarn or change the object. And that makes me nervous. But I was asked to make some felted coasters, so I thought I’d give it a try considering I was using scrap yarn.

Yarn is knitpicks palette. I may do these again, and if so I may block the ends out more roundly. It did take quite a bit of blocking to get the middles flat, but they turned out lovely even so!
