The second Sunday in May is designated as "Mother's Day" here in the United States. It is a day to honor mothers and celebrate them. Looking forward to that day this weekend, we would like to share with you a recent post from the Manos del Uruguay blog
, "Te Quiero Mama". The windows showcase designs and woven garments created by the artisans for the local markets and brands throughout the world.
Manos del Uruguay is hosting a contest on their Facebook
page (note, this is a separate page from the Manos del Uruguay Yarns Facebook page
!) They have collected photo submissions of moms and the one with the most "Likes" will win a $2500 prize from the shops!
Maybe your Mom would like something special created by your hands using Manos del Uruguay yarns
? We try to share inspiring projects here on our blog
and others also share their projects in our Ravelry group
. By searching the projects on Ravelry completed in Manos del Uruguay yarns
and including "Mom" or "for Mom" as a search term you can have a peek at the items others have crafted with Mom in mind.
