Easter Eve

Brooklyn's Bunny is finished! Just in time to give it to her before church in the morning. The yarn is alpaca, so it's very soft and squishy. She stands about 7 inches tall, so is the perfect size for my 8 month old granddaughter.

Recipe: Pattern is the Luxury Lop-Eared Bunny from the January Creative Knitting Magazine; knit from Bernat Alpaca Natural Blend yarn.

I'm very pleased with how this turned out, especially since it's my first knitted toy!


Today while out running my errands I picked up some photos that I'd had printed at Walmart. We have a new Walmart near us that I just love (sounds strange doesn't it?) and one of the bonus parts of shopping there is the Dunkin Donuts on the way out. I treat myself to a Mocha Swirl Iced Latte Lite most trips and today splurged and got 3 chocolate donut holes. Finished my errands, got home, brought in all my bags and could not find my pictures anywhere. Chalked it up to one of those things and figured the pictures would turn up eventually. Well.....tonight while cooking parts of our Easter dinner the phone rings and a young man asks if this is "Mrs. XXXX". Yes it is, I said. "Were you in Dunkin Donuts earlier today?" And do y'all know that the first thing that went through my mind at that point was that it was my conscience calling to make me feel guilty about those donut holes? LOL! He went on to tell me that I had left my photos there, so I hung up, relayed the story to Keith, laughing all the while, then went and picked them up. Never let it be said that a conscience is a quiet thing!
