Hello, hope you all have nice and warm indoor days. I've been living in Amman, Jordan, for more than a decade, and here, there aren't many choices of yarn. So when I found DMC yarn in my neighbourhood's main commercial street, I bought it at once.
I love the violet and light yellow combination, and since I wanted to make a project using a pattern that includes short rows method, here is what I've made, hope you like it.
