Very pretty! Have you found anything to your liking yet? The idea of a toy really appeals to me (I know, I'm a sucker for toys - lol), but I keep thinking the toy could be named - of course, Olivia! That would be pretty special to a 4 year old, a toy named after her, made just for her. Just saying... ... ... :o)
Oh, that is a good idea. :)
Pickle, I'm glad to see you on here. I've been worried about you due to the weather.
I was worried too! The town of Harveyville KS was hit by a tornado the other night (home of Nikol Lohr's Yarn School- the Harveyville Project). I haven't found out yet if the school was damaged. It's only about 85 miles south of here- I really ought to go to it one of these years. :\
I haven't watched the news to see how things panned out later, but initial estimates were that 60% of the town was destroyed. Population 240. We had super super high winds with that storm but just straight line winds. This time!
That's awful. I hope the school was spared, but more importantly that no one there was hurt. I sure hope that the weather they're predicting for this weekend does not come to fruition. It sounds crazy and scarey. But I am so glad to hear you are fine.
I hope you do make it to this school sometime. It sounds so cool beans!
Someone on Ravelry was also talking about that tornado. I assume since they were talking about a town of 240 being wiped out, that it must be the same one. Wish I could remember who it was. I want to say Flutterbys, but I know that's wrong. Wait, it was definitely BlushingEwe! She's in Topeka.
Oh, it's been too long since I've read this thread! Ugh the weather. I feel for all the families affected.
You are right. It would have been perfect, Wendy. But I didn't have a toy pattern that I liked. I got one today -- a free pattern that uses NORO yarn from KnittingFever.com. It is adorable, but I'd already started the shawlette.
ETA: It's a rabbit -- perfect for Easter. Might do it anyway, even if I don't use the Olivia yarn.
Ooh, I don't have to find it on Rav! I really like it.
Jo, I am so glad you claimed it...it's perfect for your purpose :D)
Yea for Jo and Olivia!!! Booo Hooo for me! =(
I really, really like this one Bren!! I'm now officially starting a 'Bren Wishlist' to join the 'Christina Wishlist'! Just thought I'd warn you!!
I'm so glad you got this for Olivia.
