Free Friday: Pretty Spring Coaster

Hi everyone!  Happy Friday!  How has your week been?  Mine's been a struggle, to be honest.  I've been so eager to get back to my design work, but I developed a serious case of cubital tunnel syndrome.  That's like carpel tunnel, except it's in my elbow instead of my wrist.  It basically meant I couldn't bend my elbow without a lot of pain, which left me pretty much unable to do anything!  I spent the last two weeks taking lots of walks and doing a lot of cleaning around the house because those are the only things that didn't make me hurt.  Sad!  But at least I got my exercise :)

But now I'm actually feeling better which means I can get back to my designs!  And hopefully nothing else dramatic will happen to keep me from working on things.  Sheesh, it's like one thing after another!

Anyway, this week's free pattern is a pretty coaster!  The pattern itself isn't spectacular.  Instead, it's the yarn that makes this piece really special.  I love this yarn!  The colors are just so soft and springy.

It looks like it's going to be a cool weekend here, so I'll be spending some time stuck inside yet again!  But instead of moping, I'm going to get active and get some more designs worked on!  What are you doing this weekend?  I hope it's something fun!
