Hope you had a happy New Year's celebration and have given some thought to your hopes and dreams for the coming year.
Our family is happily expecting the birth of our newest granddaughter this spring, and as you can see I'm preparing! This little bootie was a cinch to knit but it's not done yet because it requires quite a bit of finishing work; seaming, weaving in yarn ends, crocheting button loops, and sewing on buttons (that is after I make some pretty fabric buttons!). I'm also not sure about the sizing of the finished bootie, it seems a bit wide at the front. I've been checking out some other patterns and am considering trying these, these, and these. Oh, the decisions of a grandma!
There is nothing quite like the news of new life! I feel so much joy when I think about our granddaughter growing a little each day, getting ready for her grand entrance into our family. She already holds a dear place in each of our hearts, and this before we have even laid eyes on her. How much more joy will we feel when we get to see the miracle of her and hold her in our arms! Can't wait!
