His welcome card is strung with a clothesline bearing a t-shirt and bib cut from cotton fabric made a little sturdier with some fabric stiffener, and a tiny bootie knit on #3 needles.
I started this v-neck sweater months ago when his parents told me they were waiting for a special baby and when news of his arrival came I just needed to close up the seams,
add a little blue merino wool heart,
straighten it out with steam from a warm iron,
and wrap it all up.
He slept in my arms for over an hour and stole my heart when he held my hand.
