One A Day-----Week 5





Hello everybody!
I hope you all are fine. I really enjoyed reading all your comments last week and visiting all your blogs seeing your progress with your wonderful projects.
I want to show you first, what kept me away from my blanket last week. I made a shawl for my Aunts birthday, which had to be finished on Friday. When we last met, 6 month ago, I have told her, that I have just started to crochet and she reacted like most of the people, when I am telling that. Like oh no, why you are doing that? It is so boring.( crochet is not very common here) So, I have decided to make her a shawl, which will knock her out of her shoes. And it worked, she was speechless for a moment. I guess, her opinion about crochet has changed now! : )

Pattern

My blanket has grown a little bit, I have 36 rows now. On Sunday, I have started to sew in the ends and it was a lot to sew in. I have decided to do this every Sunday now, instead of doing this all in the end.



I wish you all a wonderful week! Barbina
