After getting my marvelous Glerup slippers for xmas I am (once again) caught up in a serious love of felt.

I have been on the hunt for new felt placemats for a couple years now, and just realised that I will never find what I am looking for at the price I want…so I had better get on the making of them!

This is the type of thing I have in mind:


Chunky, organic and in natural colours. Likely in my favourite natural wool colours – grey and winter white.

The plan? Look for some cheap, scritchy, scratchy wool sweaters at the Sally and then learn how to crochet circles. How hard could it be?

(she asks, cringing)

It couldn’t be much harder than knitting, can it?
