'Freebie Friday'..........

Good morning..................
Rub your eyes..... have you had enough coffee... did you read the title of this post correctly? Yupper............. its Freebie Friday.
I've decided that as often as I can... Fridays will be days I either share an original design I have written ... or share a free design from the net that I have found fun to do. I will post the pattern or link here. So check in on Fridays for sure... you may find a treat.
So with that................... This is my first Freebie to share.

I found this through Ravelry - I love these. I plan to make one for my son's teacher to start, and I likely need one, and I have a friend who loves to read and there's someone else for. . . =D
