Now they match...

Apparently the new job is going to be stressful. How could I know so soon?

They gave each of us a boring white (with logo) stress ball on the first day!

Add a little red yarn and crochet - now mine will stand out in the crowd.

I made a matching mug cozy and coaster - just to brighten up my workstation.

Coaster is made using the free Granny in the Round tutorial from The Royal Sisters and some rich red wool.

Now I am all set for week two and my 1 hour a day of hooking on the ride.
Progress was made on some of the other projects, I will share photo's soon.
Have a colourful week.

That's so great. You make me want to learn more crocheting this winter. I barely know how to but you make it look like a lot of fun.

And when you get to finish up with this stressful job add a string to hang it up and you have a new christmas decoration!
Good to have a little cheerfulness to brighten up the workstation...

Great Idea! Might do one myself.

I made myself a rainbow mandala and tea cosy, so have a lovely bright little tea station in my office :D

Love the stress ball cozy! Wonder if you could make them to look like people's heads, with hair etc! Perhaps not looking like the boss though ;)
