But alas I received an email from my SIL in Germany, telling me that the Christmas package I mailed off on December 11 finally arrived yesterday! (don't even get me started on the mail system!) See I did in fact take pictures of the scarves I crocheted for she & my BIL, because they were a little different from the ones I made everyone else - a different pattern, a different type of yarn, and I used 2 colors instead of just one straight through. I was waiting until they arrived to Germany before I posted this Blog, so as not to spoil the surprise.
To top it all off, I crocheted myself another scarf the other day, mostly to play around with a wider length, but also because I wanted another one in a different color ... in case I feel like wearing a color other than Brown when it's cold! ;-)
So here they are!
BIL is stationed in Afghanistan right now and said it gets very cold there and that they have snow as well. So I thought the same sort of scarf would benefit him well while he is there. Unfortunately my package missed his Leave by just 1 day :-( But I know that SIL will send it on to him for me :-)
Now this is the scarf I made for myself.
