Nope, I didn't make it and to be honest, it was only a semi bargain, but since I managed to find The Bargain of the Century I have been searching for another one in paler, more muted colours, which I love. It's taken pretty much since March to find this one. I did find a few others but they were beyond my budget so I missed out. However, this one I got and I am very glad I missed out on the others as this is nicer! And it's big... really big!
I have a friend, Bella who is making one and it looks totally amazing, but I don't really know how to crochet and wool suppliers are, well, zero up here and I like to feel wool before buying so online isn't so great for that..yeah yeah I'm justifying not doing it myself!
I love it regardless.
