The Mail room, and a cute little baby animal that grabbed my heart

 For me, life is best when it's filled with animals and the people who love them. 

The Mail Room:

This beautifully embroidered and sewn knitting tote came in the mail with the amazing embroidery spoons.  There is a knitting teddy bear on the other side but her picture was a little blurry.  I'll do another photo shoot asap, because she is so cute!

 Spoon Theory is how people with auto immune system diseases have learned to cope, and that's why they are such a powerful symbol to us. 

Thank you m'friend!   :o)  You made that a gray day into a recharged day!

Knitting Cold Front:

I haven't even bothered to try to spit splice the yarn on the Baktus.  That's something for another day.  But, I did find this site containing patterns that we thought were probably gone forever, since the books (or at least some of them) were out of print.  Knitting Pure and Simple pattern page

And I got THIS pattern as a PDF download.  Easy as pie to do.  I just am in love with little bolero.
