Title: House warming/birthday gift
Post by: ilovesnails on April 07, 2011 09:20:30 AM
So a good friend of mine moved into an appt last mnth with her boyfriend. I told her I would make her a housewarming gift. She had been admiring the baby blankets I make for a long time now. Little did she know I modified the patten to make it big enough for her queen sized bed! This took me about a mnth of crafting with about a wk off in the there for the ami swap! I got it done just in time for her birthday/house warming party tomorrow night. I can't wait to give it to her! I love the giving almost as much as the crafting of gifts. I hope it dosen't show to badly that I had to use two different brands of yarn. I ran out of the one and had to go with the closest I could find. Just about everyone I've asked says they cant' tell so I hope I did a good job!

What a great friend you are to make this for her!  I love getting homemade things for gifts.  You did a wonderful job and I am sure she will be ecstatic with it!

Very cool, and you can't tell from the pic that the yarn isn't all the same.

Thanks everyone! I can totally see the line in the pics where the yarn changes! I'm guessing it's because I was working on it all.

It's lovely! I'm sure your friend will be very very very pleased to have it!

I can't tell where the yarn changes either :)
