I don't have a lot of time to write right now because I am off to go to work. I am bartending tonight for the Royal Winnipeg ballet, should be quite fancy. I just wanted to give a couple of updates, I forgot to mention that the crocheted forest friends I made are from a free pattern I got online here. It is truly an amazing site, I love it and I don't even really like to crochet!!
Also, I decided not to submit my pattern to knitty, because I think it would have been more appropriate for their christmas issue. So I will be posting here as a gift shortly :)
