Crocheted Egg Gathering Apron

Occasionally the joy of making the perfect gift for someone comes to fruition,
and it is so exciting!

That was the case with this gift for my adorable D-I-L,
who gathers eggs from their chickens every morning.

An Egg Gathering Apron!
 


She has a hippie/bohemian/free-spirit style so every effort was made to match the yarn with her style.
That's where the fun began...

You see my dear friend Sue at Felted Button started me with this fun project by
 generously offering yarn from her leftover Scheepjes projects, as pictured here:
 What's more fun than scrap-stash-busting?

Scrap-stash-busting someone else's stash, of course!!!
Especially when it comes from the likes of Sue at Felted Button
Oh happy day!

Yarn particulars:
Secret Garden, Spirit, and lots of little Stone Washed and River Washed scraps.
(Yes, there was a lot of weaving in of the ends, but that's OK.)
Gosh, gotta' love a friend like that!
(She's easy to love anyway, however. )

Pattern particulars:
I combined these beautiful stash-scraps with a pattern from 
Heart, Hook, and Home found here on Ravelry or here on Etsy.
It was shortened a bit and a ruffle added to the bottom.

I can't hardly wait until Christmas to gift this!!!

I hope there's a lot of 

going on in your neck of the woods.

Warmly,

Astri
