I have a very wonderful friend, her name is Bonny. I met her around 13 years ago, shortly after I lost my life-long friend Celia suddenly to a brain aneurysm. Celia and I were 46 and had been friends for 40 years. In an instant, she was gone. I was devastated, so heartbroken ...I literally ached inside, it was life-changing for me. No one can take another's place, but when I met Bonny, and our friendship grew, I realized that as life continues, other wonderful people can come into your life, but you need to open the door. Bonny is a true inspiration, always volunteering her time to family and others, and has encouraged me in my creative endeavors. This past August, she was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. She had surgery and is currently undergoing chemotherapy. My heart is broken again, but I am in hopes that she will be one of a tiny percentage of people that makes it 5+ years. The world, not just my world, would not be the same without Bonny...we need more Bonnys in the world.
This is the hat I designed and knit for her as she began losing her lovely long hair. I searched for something that would be meaningful to her, and chose this celtic braid.
I love Bonny...she is a sweet soul. Wish her well and please send her loving, positive healing energy.

- I am a self-employed knitter/designer and photographer. I strive to write unique designs inspired by nature, folklore, magic, Fairies and Elves, and I find a lot of inspiration from symbolism and traditions in cultures throughout history. I also love to photograph nature on an intimate level. As a Master Gardener I raise garden starts each spring to sell locally, and I am also a soap maker and musician. I can be found at our local Dexter Lake Farmer's and Crafter's Market on Sundays from May thru October selling my knitting patterns and hand knit items, as well as hand crafted soap, macro-photography from the garden, and tomato and pepper starts for your garden. You can find me on Ravelry as Peargirl and our band The Pears can be found on Reverbnation.
