How exciting! Congratulations Ritaw!!! Rita sent in a letter with a picture of all her lovely Blossoms she made from a Simply Knitting pattern by Alan Dart. They are gorgeous and she is so talented. They published her letter and picture in this month's Simply Knitting!!! (Feb 2008, page 21).
Hooray! (and she is so sweet, she sent one to my daughter, who LOVES it.)
