Thank you for bein' a friend!

Have you longed to sit around a kitchen table, binging on cheesecake with your elderly best friends?
Do you wish someone would tell you stories from her days in St. Olaf?
Wonder what it would be like to relax on a lanai?
Then maybe you need a crochet Betty White!

Now, we all know Betty White has gotten really popular lately, thanks to the Facebook campaign to have her host "Saturday Night Live." But to me, she'll always be the charmingly naive Rose Nylund from "The Golden Girls." And that's how I've designed her here -- with her fuzzy blond hair, chinos and sensible aqua cardigan, suitable for a day volunteering or a date with Miles!

Check it out on Ravelry or download the pattern here for free!
