Now that my first give away has made it across the world all the way to the lovely home of
Grateful 4 Crochet. I wanted to show you a little bit more of what I sent.
First of all was the scarf I made on my rectangle loom. I am hoping that it is as soft and yummy on my new friends neck as I think it will be.
I also included a Brittany crochet hook in size J, to go along with Cascade Echo Duo yarn, which is my all time favorite yarn. I made a beautiful Queen Anne Lace Scarf with this yarn, and made the outside petals for my second Japanese inspired flower shawl with it, too.
Some lotion for hard working hands, some beautiful wool wash, and fun, "Crocheted For You" cards. Let me just say I had so much fun with this give away that I know there will be more in my future. When I had this all wrapped up and ready to post, the man working behind the register asked what was in it, I told him a scarf, yarn, and a crochet hook, with some wool wash. He said to me, "Do you know how much this is going to cost?". I simple said, "I don't really care, I promised this to a friend and she is going to get it. You probably don't knit or crochet so you wouldn't understand." I think he thought I was off my rocker, but you know if you have a blogging friend you would never let them down, no matter where they live.
Hope you are all having a great weekend. And I hope you find time to do something you really love.
