That's quite nice...I can see it being worn with a cute little outfit with a plaid or country print. Very nice.

I've been knitting almost non-stop for 46 years....I did slack off a bit for the two years I was hooking my 6 X 9 foot carpet.

I confess, at 16 I could have read that, but not any part of it made sense today. I'm delighted there are still people who knit and crochet, but these fingers made a big mistake and stopped crocheting about ten years ago. My mama was smarter than I, she crocheted right up until she couldn't see any more at 70. Maybe I could learn again.
