Well, I just couldn't wait any longer, I had already waited TWO MONTHS! It is all JJ's fault, of course. This is what happened.
A few months ago, we came across Manos del Uruguay yarns and both fell in love with them. I thought crocheting a scarf in that yarn would be really lovely and because I like the old cow, I decided to make a scarf for her for Christmas. I worked my little fingers to the bone, trying to finish the scarf before JJ was due to come to our house. Why, oh why did I bother, lol? What with starting office work, a car that was on its last legs, lots of snow and all sorts of other things, JJ still hasn't made the one hour journey to our house. So you see, I couldn't post photos of the scarf I had made, I couldn't spoil the surprise. Last week however, I got sick of looking at her beautifully wrapped Christmas present still sitting all lonely and sad in the drawing room. So I posted it. And she received it today! YAY! So now I can share the photos with you.
I also made a scarf for my mother-in-law in the same colours. She loved it! The yarn really is beautiful to work with and to wear. This is MIL's scarf -
And this is the scarf I made for THAT woman from Brighton, lolol -
I love the colours of the yarns. Now why the heck didn't I made one for myself? Hmm.
Well, now that the OWOH event is finally over, I can get back to my crocheting instead of trying to visit 1100 blogs. I had such a blast though, and found some wonderful new blogs and people which I would never have known about without this event.
Progress report on my 20mins-a-day crafting tomorrow! xxx
