This week I had the honor of meeting a very tiny person for the first time.  

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.
