I received this beautiful Knit Picks yarn and Pattern in the mail yesterday...
It was sent to me byKate....
Last Month I made some Fur Hats for the Children in the Cancer Hospital and Kate sent me this to Thank Me for making them....
She wrote a lovely note to go with it :

"Your individual contribution of your time, energy and talent did not go unnoticed ! The Kids have thoroughly enjoyed the hats.... and as one of the Child Life Specialists from The Floating Hospital :
"You provided these kids with something they don't often have: A Choice. They are taking so much time choosing and selecting their hats. Something so Simple, like picking the right hat to wear gives them a sense of control in a very uncontrollable situation.

:) Kate, Dan (PC) and of course, Pumpkin !
I did not expect anything except to know the Kids were having Fun with the Hats..
Thank You Kate and Bless Those Children !

I found this Little Bolero pattern in a Sirdar Book but I changed a few things around and came up with this !!!!
Its going to look adorable on "Little Penny" !!!
I used Bernart So Soft and trimed it with Lucci... a yarn I bought last year in the Yarn shop... The same one I made the TuTu out of a while ago !!

All this Talk about Eggs and Easter and Bunnies put me in the mood to make one !!
The pattern is from a Filatura DiCrosa Book..
I had one skein of Jaeger Merino just waiting to be a Bunny.. :)
I also finished three of the cable squares which are next to her !!
I'm not too sure just what I am going to do about the Cable Blanket..I am really not a "square" person and they are driving me nuts... I might just have to change "plans" for this Blanket...
I have several colors of the Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece and what comes to mind is maybe a log cabin blanket???
Or maybe just a simple diagonal with the colors changing????
Hummmmmmmmmm???????? Decisions... Decisions.. !!!!
And People think its EASY being Creative.. Ha !!!
