So back to the original scarf this evening ..... and I'm almost half way round with the crochet edge. For a first attempt I'm quite pleased. The pattern did state to use Sublime merino yarn, so I'm going to crochet the next one using the correct yarn. I've found a lovely shade of blue on eBay because John Lewis didn't have it in stock on Friday. Oh well just have to wait a few days.
Last night I had dinner at my sisters house. Whilst she was preparing our toad in the hole (which was yummy) I had a craft evening with Yazmin (my niece) and her little friend. I took a bag of felt, buttons, ribbon and pretty sparkly cotton. We sat and chatted and made little felted valentine hearts! I gave mine to Megan (my other neice) and made it into a key ring for her. We decided to do another craft evening in Feb to make Mothers Day gifts.
