What are you most proud of? I thought the coasters were a bit too bumpy after I made them, so I blocked them, and they came out much flatter. No problem standing a glass on them now.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I used to resist blocking because I thought it was too time-consuming. But after HAVING to do it on a few items, I realized it is well worth the effort (which really isn't all that much). I now block most of my crocheted items because I like them to have that crisp, professional look.

Hi, Debbie. I'm glad I read the comments and read what you mentioned on how to make these coasters flat, but I do not know what you meant by "blocking" them. Can you please explain how? Thanks!

Blocking is easy. Just get the coasters thoroughly wet. They dry flat, or better yet pin them to a flat surface (I use a blocking board, but any padded surface will do). Let them dry completely.

I forgot a step...after wetting the coasters, remove excess water by blotting with a towel.
