Everything else was purchased and made by me.
Happy October! Since Fall is here, what better way to acknowledge the season than to make a few Halloween coasters?!
First I'm going to review this Reflective Yarn (Neon Orange) 3.5 oz that sent was to me by Red Heart (See First Impressions Post)
This was a pretty cool yarn to make my projects with. The texture is both soft and rough. The yarn in general is relatively soft, but the reflective string that runs throughout the yarn gives it a rough feel. Since I made a few simple items, I had left over. However, I would suggest purchasing more if your going to make a larger crafting project etc. I think it's kind of neat how when you turn the flash on your camera the yarn lights up. Thus the name "reflective yarn". The only con I had is the reflective yarn would get caught outside my crocheting hook sometimes as I crocheted. That might have happen since I didn't use the recommended K hook. I used an H hook instead. I give this yarn a B, and depending on the project, I would purchase this yarn in the future.

Even though I made these coasters for Halloween, I can use them throughout the Fall. I'll probably just remove the Jack O Lantern coaster.
