  2. Very clever - it should look cute on the mantle. I've never learned to crochet, but lately I am seeing all kinds of nice projects done in crochet.

    1. Thank you Carol. My mom says it is perfect on her mantle. Crochet is very easy to pick up if you ever want to... way easier than knitting, at least it was for me!
