Something a little different!

Another of my friends is happily expecting a new grandbaby in the spring and being that the father of the baby practically grew up in our house, I simply have to make sure the wee one has some special things.

This is crocheted, using my now favourite go-to pattern (thanks MEK!!) for the main part and an out-of-my head border.  There's enough yarn left over to make a wee little sweater and perhaps either matching bootees or a hat.  




I'd happily show you a close up of the pattern, but
it seems Blogger is having 'issues' and won't let me.
Argh!!!

You might want to check this site out.  The artist makes simply amazing felted animals and birds.

Today your quote is from Abraham Sutzkever...."If you carry your childhood with you, you never become older"
