I was browsing PINTEREST probably looking for an oil remedy and TOTALLY got distracted and found this –> free pattern on yarnutopia.com to make a mermaid tail lap blanket:
I thought to myself: ‘The girls would really LOVE reading on the papasan with this!’
I knew it was a lofty goal, so I refrained from buying every skein of yarn ar Walmart and got only what I needed (3 for the body and 1 for tail). I brushed up on my crochet skills by watching these gifs: http://crochet-gifs.tumblr.com
I pretty much didn’t see my family for a week, my forearms feel like they are going to fall off, and I’m cross-eyed, but I did it. ( There is no modeling photo because it’s waaaay past midnight.) One down, two more to make.
