I don't drink coffee, but my husband does, and I usually wrap a towel around the press when brewing coffee for him, to keep it nice and hot. I thought this would be a nice way to both use up the odd yarn bits and try out this design, which has long interested me. It is an adaptation of a sweater pattern in an old magazine. Not something I would wear, but I like the way the colors merge into each other, and the dots in squares. It kept my hands occupied as I listened, and it was fun to play with this pattern. I think I'd like to do it again, but in a finer gauge, so the circles look more circular, maybe double knit coasters or something.
