More tushie mats

This is SO addictive... Instead of just sitting in the sofa I am crocheting most every evening. And then just pop these things in the washing machine and see what happens...
These first two are made from Lovikka yarn. Pretty expensive. They are very thick, but really don't felt that well together. They get more fuzzy, but still a lot more compact after washing it.

The pink one is a request from my daughter. She wanted a pink one. And of course she got one. The other one, is slightly larger, and has burgundy red and a brown edge. Very warm colors!
The multicolored stripy one in the front is made from Eskimo and that one felted very much. It got really compact, and is hence a little bit smaller than the others. This one is made from scrap yarns after a shawl I made (but still haven't blogged about).
The turquoise-grey one and the burgundy-pink are both made from various wool yarns and these felt just perfect! They are slightly thinner than the Lovikka ones, but still very warm.
These tushie mats are about 40 cm in diameter (15 1/2 inch). And will be perfect if you are out in the woods for a walk. Or are sitting on a cold bench, perhaps watching your kids in the playground or in a sports arena.
I think I like these turquoise-grey and burgundy-pink ones the best. They get very flexible and will be easy to pack into a rucksack or even a purse (a large purse...).

And yes. It IS possible that a lot of people will get these for christmas gifts... I might add one or two to my shop. I am not sure yet, but you know where to find me if you are interrested!!

And there might be a few others coming up. The next one will be navy and cream...

How beautiful they are. They remind me of the huge sized colorful lollipops with the swirled design we used to eat when we were children! They look so warm!

Lovely!

Gillar framförallt de med spiralränder!
(fortfarande ett mysterium hur man får till det där...)

Jättefina!

Och jag satt just och funderade som metamorphosis här ovan - hur gör du spiralerna? Och hur stora är de innan du tovar dem? Om du vill dela med dig, alltså.
