Show and Tell - Christmas Crocheting



I participate in Secret Angels at my church. Basically, its a secret pal type thing. In March at our annual Ladies Tea Party, I was given the name of my Secret Angel. Throughout the year, I give her a gift for major holidays and her birthday and anniversary. I've been working diligently over the last few weeks to get my gift for my Secret Angel ready for Christmas. I'm now doubly ready to get this project completed so I can begin working on my next project for our baby!

A few pics for you to enjoy:

See what the rest of the class are up to at Mel's!

What a gorgeous afghan. Your pal is lucky to have you making it for her.

That is beautiful!!!! I knit, but don't crochet. I'm determined to learn to do it.

Your secret pal is one lucky lady!

Hi Lynn,

Thanks for stopping by from Mel's blog! That crochet work is absolutely gorgeous! I have been crocheting for just a little while now but am just doing the very basics. Maybe someday I will get as good as you! Gotta learn how to follow a pattern first...LOL!

It made my day to hear that you had that "adoption" scenario kind of drop into your lap. It really gives me hope that we will be able to build our family too. I wish you the best of luck and blessings with your upcoming adoption.

What a beautiful afghan! I love the colors and the zigzag pattern :) Thanks for dropping by my blog - I've never been to London, and it's on our list as the next big international vacation we take :)
