hospital crochet

It all started when I was making many gift hats for Christmas and my son B found a pattern in my pile for a retro style hat and he asked me if I would make one for him. He requested the colors he would like and I purchased them. Just a reminder, those colors are not for the Bears, he just likes these two together!!
I must admit that I love getting requests from the kids. I love th
at they want me to make them homemade crochet lovlies.
That being said, I quickly grabbed the supplies for that hat as we went out the door, so I could hook away while at last week's fever admit. I am pleased to show you that I did finish it. I love it. You guessed it, the other two little ones want one too.

Since I had some leftover hat yarn I thought it would be fun to make some fingerless gloves. This yarn was Debbie Bliss something...not cheap but I just bought 2 skeins of this one day last year when it was on sale. I thought they turned out cute and they fit! This will be real nice for those cold mornings on the computer.

Once I used that up, there still sat a small ball of leftover yarn in my bag. Since I have always wanted to make a soap saver bag, I went for it. This was fun to make and turned out pretty cute. I added a flair of fun fur to the top. I almost forgot to give credit to the blog who offered this pattern. There you go!
Just realized that there is no photo of cute boy with hat on....I will get on that post haste!

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:
MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.
