Odds and Ends

Thank you all so much for the well wishes and warm welcome for our baby. I am happy to report that she is two weeks old now, MashsaAllah. Her jaundice is almost gone and her feeding and sleeping pattern much improved. Her most endearing action is the spontaneous smile she likes to bestow upon her admirers from time to time. I could not resist a picture of her tiny feet.
Somewhat related are the little projects I did right before she arrived. I knit a pair of tube socks.
And a pair of Stay-on Baby Booties. I love the pattern and how these turned out.
And a pair of Saartje Bootees.
Needless to say, all these pairs are too large just now. Which is just fine as it is too hot to wear these right now anyway.
Also I used some leftover cotton yarn to make this headband for my kindergartener.
Also, I just finished a cardigan for my elder daughter. It is soaking right now. Hopefully I will have pictures soon.


  1. How cute little feets! :) Where did you take the time to do all these crafts? Wonderful and beautiful works!I love it!

  2. Thanks for posting - I've been thinking of you and wondering how everything was going. So glad to hear this very good news! It must be a relief - to everyone - that the baby is eating and sleeping well.

    Those sweet booties and socks will be the perfect size just when they are needed :)

  3. The little daughter -so cute.
