October is almost over. We must hurry!

While perhaps not everyone’s favourite month, October has a lot to offer in terms of themes for crocheting. Not only Halloween, but all the colors of fall come together to give an end of the season, post-harvest vibe.  So, one great way to make use of this is an October mug rug. While generally coasters go under drinks, with the season for mugs of hot liquid, it’s great to protect your tabletops with something more substantial. Thus, mug rugs are the perfect solution. Moreover, what with it (still) being October, you can celebrate the season with these wonderful, fall-themed colors and designs.
