Today I'm posting an email I received from my dad this morning. My mom started crocheting her blanket last year in October when they visited me in Johannesburg around the time the "one a day" project started. She couldn't stick to the one a day and worked very hard to get it finished. Here is the email:
After many hours of hard labour and millions of crochet stitches, Yvonne completed her blanket this weekend. She bought the wool in Vereeniging in September and started this mammoth task in October. If you would like to write to her personally, her address is firstname.lastname@example.org. She enjoyed this past week's colder weather when doing the edge of the blanket as she had to work with it on her lap. I am now looking forward to the winter when I can cover up.
Lots of love
The pattern that was used is from http://crochethealingandraymond.wordpress.com/ thank you Alice for all the inspiration and tutorials. You are such a honey!
