Close up of part 13.


By the end of my FNWF, I was half way through part 14.

I feel now that I may be able to finish the full throw. Not bad for my first mandala crochet attempt!

I’ll see if it can be finished this weekend, – it’s frosty outside and perfect weather for staying in with a warm project in your lap.

    WOW… WOW… This IS the most GORGEOUS craft I’ve ever seen! This color-exposing in yarn is such a happy piece, Melanie! You must be so happy to have tackled this one! And I LOVE seeing Arthur appreciating it too. How is that you’ve hardly got a project down for a few photos, and the critters come crawling out from their nap spaces?! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ((HUGS))
