I want to say a huge thank you for the donations that have been made to the MS society. You guys are wonderful! In just one weekend, we have gathered $135. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
To show you my appreciations, here is another freebie pattern. These are just so cute--tiny little things and they work up so fast. They will make a great present to a Mommy and baby. Note, I have only used the yarn that I provided below and with gauge provided, if you substitute yarn, the size will vary.
Again, thank you for your donations!
