My two beautiful nieces have asked me if I would make them a mermaid tail blanket each. They are both in their twenties so as you can imagine it has taken me ages to finish one, as they want them to come up to their shoulders not just to their waist! Well I have now finished one and proudly took it to my crochet club, which I attend every week (it’s the highlight of my week!) and they all thought it was hilarious! So much so that they made me dress up in it!
Yes that really is me under all that wool mermaid ‘hair’! We all had such a laugh at this. Clare who runs the crochet club and also owns the wool shop, hence the ‘hair’, where we have the club, also took a video. Unfortunately I can’t upload that here, but I have put it on my Facebook page. Needless to say we didn’t get much crocheting done that afternoon!
