I visited my sister in Pennsylvania last month for the memorial gathering that celebrated the life of her late husband. I had not gone home at Christmas, so I finally was able to deliver long overdue Christmas gifts to my grand niece Sara Anna and grand nephew Matthew. I love knitting for my sister, niece and her children. They are truly " knit worthy", appreciating better fibers and understanding the work that goes into hand knitwear. Andrea, my niece, does not mind hand washing special gifts. The baby blanket I made for Sara Anna was made with Noro Taiyo.

For Sara's sweater I used http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/bellarose, I made a few changes that are listed in my project notes on my Ravelry Project Page.
For Matthew's Bunny, I used : http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/henrys-bunny With a few changes to the face and ears, then Needlefelting the head that was stuffed with wool roving so it could be sculpted. Details on my project page.

The color of the Gedifria Select Rosas yarn does not photograph well. What you don't see in the tan main yarn are the fine threads of Fuschia, Mango and Lime that also show up in with the pink thread "flowers". Yes, an unusual color choice and yarn for a 4 year old. We are a very artsy family...
