Just a few weeks ago, a miracle happened: My friend, Crystal, had herself a beautiful baby girl. Naturally, I started knitting in month 8 of her pregnancy, beginning with a ruffled vest and fanciful hat to fit a one-year old. We can't have this child getting cold next winter, after all. And, at what other opportunity can one seriously knit a corkscrew beret in bubble gum flavored yarn?
What a blessing it is to witness good people bring their children into the world. And in spring!
