Pom-Pom Tails & Life Lessons

I always have a picture in my mind of how I want a knitting project (or any project !) to turn out . . . and this little guy was no exception ! I rarely knit things for other people (don't necessarily want to push my hobby and taste on everyone else !) . . . but this is my first time becoming an aunt, and I HAD to make something for my yet-to-arrive nephew !!!

This knitting project was new and fun . . . and frustrating !! I just couldn't get the sweater the way I'd envisioned it !!! I tried several different techniques and asked one of my knitting/seamstress co-workers for suggestions . . . but in the end, I had to punt !

And you know what ???!!

I'm really happy with the way it turned out !

So here he is . . . . Benjamin Bunny !

(named in honor of my nephew Benjamin !)

I just love that little face . . . and his pom-pom tail, too !

So I guess my yarn reminded me of a little life lesson:

things may not turn out like you'd envisioned,
but you might just end up appreciating & loving the result that much more !!!
