    I have made both the lovey and the hat. They came out so good that they are now on display at our local yarn shop giving you credit for designing them.

    These are so adorable. Clicked on the link – so many choices! I have to do one for a baby due in February. I am going to have to come back after Christmas and buy a few. Prices are very reasonable. And your pattern is so good.
