May Gifted Gorgeousness

 It's time for Jo's famous Gifted Gorgeousness SAL, the SAL for everything gift and gifted! As usual, I have a couple of project that match this category perfectly, so this is my change to show them to you. This time, however, I have only one finished gift, two that are a work in progress, and one project gifted to me.

And the finish is tiny - I already showed you this fluffy scarf I made for a friend, and since I have figured out how to secure the loose ends with this fancy faux fur 'yarn', so it's now read to send to her soon!


Currently, I am also working on Age is Irrelephant, a gift for my best friend's (yes, fluffy scarf friend) mum. Since the last time you saw them, I finished the first elephant's feet, and started on the second one's ear:


You haven't seen it in a while since I paused last month to work on other stuff, but I continued working on the yellow baby blanket. I had some hiccups on this project I can't really explain- there was one row that I crocheted, frogged, and recrocheted at least three times, even though all rows are the same and there really is no reason why this one especially should give me this much trouble! But I finally made it past that row, and now I'm making good progress into the darker, real pretty yellows!

I've also worked on Ubuntu some more, the yarn for which was a gift for my birthday. I only managed to finish half of part 2 so far, but you can already see how big this is getting!

The Part 2 diamonds used almost two balls of yarn each. No wonder I have so many of every colour!

What beautiful projects you are working on! I have never been able to learn to knit, but do crochet. Your cross stitch is also beautifully done. I enjoyed visiting!

Great progress, I miss knitting. Must find a new small project to have fun with wool. The scarf is great and will be useful as it's still a cold May month. xxx

Thanks for taking part in GG this month. Lovely work on your crochet. If frogging knitting is called tinking then crochet could be corc-hetting?

Beautiful work on everything, that is some amazing yarn work as well. I'm glad you got past that fiddly row. So silly how things like that tie us up sometimes.

You've been busy. The fluffy scarf looks like it would be fun (and warm) to wear. My favorite is the yellow blanket - a very lucky baby. Ubuntu is going to be spectacular when it's done.
