little box



Yesterday Andrew and I took the little orange slip of paper to the post office to claim the package that we missed. I had a feeling it would be from Vermont. I even had a feeling it would be from Loralee. And furthermore I had a feeling that it would have some cloth diapering supplies in it. I was right on all three accounts. But I did not expect this:


or this:


Oh my goodness. Sooooo beautiful.

My first thought was that I really don't deserve all this TLC and that I am a schmuck.

My second thought was that even though I don't deserve it, I love it, love it, love it and then I think I did some jumping.

Then I went from labeling myself a schmuck, to deciding I was pretty darn smart to pick up such an awesome friend. So now I am congratulating myself on such a good decision! ;) I mean look at these things! Hand knitted cuteness for my little guy!

I love hand knitted cuteness.

My only regret? That winter is so far off.
I can't wait to put that sweater on him!

Thank you, Loralee.
You are so, so very cool.

Oh how sweet - we are expecting another grandchild in a couple of weeks any chance of the pattern for the rabbit? It would be great!
Go easy on your wish list of things to do - it clogs up your mind and lowers your immune system - be where you are at which is in a very prescious place.
Brenda in Cambridge sitting at computer meant to be sending out my historical novel which won't get published cos I am not a 'celebrity', despite it being a good piece of English social romantic history. Go well.

Sorry forgot to put my name - anonymous isn't a mouse I'd like to be.!

Brenda,

The bunny pattern was from Creative Knitting Magazine (they have a website, so you might be able to request the magazine they're from). It was a copy given to me, and I'm a little confused about one thing... the front side of the page says January 2008, but the pattern side says March 2008. They are called 'luxury lop-eared bunnies' (luxury because they were knitted in cashmere, but I chose a practical but soft machine washable yarn!) by Plymouth Yarn Co. They're great because, aside from the ears, they're done all in one piece, so not a huge amount of sewing after you have it all knit up.

Hope that helps!
