Bel Chanson

Life is good right now, but I can't seem to get the words together for an entry. Instead, here are some photos of the Chanson en Crochet I made for Bel for her birthday. I used parts of three different skeins of the delicious yarn Wendy made for me in 2004. I included 2 buttons, sewn back to back, so Bel could choose the one to suit her mood. I'm really happy with how it turned out.






Words soon, really...

Glad to hear that things are good, and I hope you've been having a fabulous holiday. The shawl is lovely, and that yarn! Wow.
