Plus, its too hot to have half an afghan on your lap while you're putting it together. This is the season for portable projects.
My favorite simple project is the mug rug. There are endless variations and we all need a coaster sooner or later. The mug rugs shown here were made to match the mugs in order to turn a so-so gift into something personalized and special.
To make the coasters shown above, weave a 4" square and add a 2" x 2" poppy colored square, turn into a Loom Bloom by pulling on one horizontal and one vertical line of yarn. Secure the flower with a contrasting color. Make the flower stem by using a running stitch in the darker color.

Another design from the web - Purlbee offers a kit with Zoom Loom, yarn and instructions for a great set of coasters.
Happy summer... happy mug rug making! Weave on! Meg
