Sweet Hugs

“It seems to be one of the paradoxes of creativity that in order to think originally, we must familiarize ourselves with the ideas of others.”
George Kneller

Recently I spent two weeks in Japan visiting my daughter who teaches English in their public school system.

While there, we were invited to spend the day with the family of one of her friend enjoying barbecue and celebrating Obon, a Japanese Buddhist custom to honor the spirits of one's ancestors.

The giving of gifts are a part of Japanese culture and since I knew about the event of ahead of time, I made sure I had gifts for the family.

Three of them I made for the ladies who have made my daughter welcome and part of their family.

Unfortunately, the yarn wrappers were tossed and when I tried to find them in the store, the colors were not available so I can't pass on the supplier information.

Here is scarf #3

I used this AFGHAN PATTERN from Tamara Kelly to create this 3 tone scarf

Thanks for stopping by!
