Thank you very much! These patterns are beautiful! I have a couple weddings this summer and I wanted to just give gift cards but that seems so impersonal so I thought that I'd make a basket with these items in and put in the gift card. I can't afford much on the card so maybe this will make me look less "cheap."

:clapThank you for these patterns! I love them! And they're unique too. I love the economic way you've done this too. Now I can try out some other colors in the smaller yarn.

Thanks for sharing your genuine idea and kudos to you for such creative thinking, though wedding stores are full with bridal shower gifts, but such genuine ideas are hard to find.
