FO: Baby Clothes
I haven't posted anything new in a while, but don't worry, I haven't been idle!
Today I had the great pleasure of dropping off my first round of baby clothes at the crisis pregnancy center. The girl working was thrilled when she saw the cardigans, she asked me if they were very hard, and then hung them up in the front so all the girls could see them. I was greatly encouraged by this!
I had collected some stuff from people at my church, so I brought a box and two trash bags of clothes and bedding, some baby food, and even a high chair! I knitted two cardigans and two blankets, one sewn and one knitted, (first pic) two teddys (second pic), and five hats and five pairs of booties. (Third pic, two pairs of booties not shown.)

I am so eager to make more, I'm so glad that even something as small as my knitting can have an impact on the mother's life, by telling her in a simple way that someone cares for her and her baby.
