My Give Away

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.

This is a lovely, thoughtful and generous gift Meredith, and I'm sure your blog friend is going to love it.

I love the Brittany crochet hooks. They feel so nice to work with. Beth recently gave me another one as a gift. I'm so pleased!

yes, your friend did love it!!!
And was so amazingly grateful and happy when I received it.
And the crochet hook- words cannot describe how much I love it- not only had I never seen a wooden one before, working with it is just so comfortable!!!!!!!!
And the LoLo is awesome, the wool is beautiful, the scarf is so pretty and keeps me warm, and the whole package was just the most thoughtful ever. I am so lucky, and thankful
Thank you so much.
This was my first ever prize, and I would hazard a guess that it will remain the best

When I had my first giveaway my husband made the comment, "You are spending some money on postage you know." Men can be clueless at times, it wasn't all about the $, it was all about the giving. I guess they just don't always see what the real meaning behind the gift is :) I'm sure your blogger friend loved her package, I know I would have. I am already planning my next giveaway. That is half the fun for me.
