YAY!!  A challenge I can enter!

Underthemountain invited me to the IYP swap last round.  I had swapped with her before and she always spoils, she is such a great person, I knew I had to make her something really special and I knew just what it would be.  Averia helped by sending me a beautiful pic of Lana, most of you probably know Lana, our little craftster child  Wink  I got a pattern made from it and some yarn and went to play!!!  It took me a while to get it done, the colour changes are very tedious, some rows take 30 - 45 minutes and others take just 5, depending on the colour changes.  Once you get to the middle though and you can actually "see" what you're making, it gets so much easier to make because you just get excited to see more of it!!  I guess I should mention that its crocheted, in case you wondered.  Tongue

Anyways, on to the pic, unfortunately I only took one, but its a good one.  You could also check out underthemountain's profile pic for a different view.



Thanks for looking!!!

I agree--this was definitely one of the most incredible gifts...many of us have "known" Lana from the time she was a baby, so to see her in a blanket was so moving...

glad you entered this as well...it is a project to be shared!

All I can say is that it is even more lovely and awesome in person.  You can definitely see the love crocheted into every stitch!  Smiley
