  7. That is just tooo cute!! Though I have to admit that it looks the best on the little ones. Kids are definitely made for cute. : ) I learned to crochet about a year ago and I can't even image how long this took and how hard it was to get it all to turn out so well. Great job. Thanks for playing with CHNCC2
