Hi everyone, Kirstin here again. Long time no post! Remember the baby hat and booties I made a little bit ago? Well, it seems they are getting some use! Everyone, meet Clark Andrew, the newest member of our extended-extended family.
I think the booties may border on silly they are so large, but the hat actually fits! Clark was born 5 1/2 weeks early, and we were expecting him to be somewhat early, so I modified the pattern to be smaller. Adding baby alpaca to Mikayla’s fiber for extra softness seems to have worked, as his momma Jess reports his skin isn’t irritated at all.
The Daisy Chain throw I made also found a home with Clark and his family (which gave us an excuse to visit the handsome little guy). It just gives me warm fuzzies to see things I made for people I love being used. Like in some small way, by giving gifts like this, pieces of ourselves become part of something larger and more awesome than we could ever be on our own.
