I did it!!!!

I did it, I did it. I finished my first ever hand made wedding present!! Last year I got this insane idea that I should make wedding presents for my family from now on. After months of debating what to make, then deciding on a table cloth, getting the materials, then deciding that I didn't like it, getting more materials and starting 3 (yes, that's right, three) times, I got some more yarn and started this round ripple blanket. I used a Shifio baby shawl pattern, used a strand each of DK and 4-ply with a 9mm crochet hook and made this. Well, she got married in November (yep, delayed reaction) and now in January I finished her present. All it needs now is to get it wrapped and posted to South Africa. I have had the card a few months, but as they say, better late than never. Lets just hope the present for her sister getting married in May gets made and posted in time.
