Our newest little one arrived on October 28th.
We feel very blessed. She is like a gift for each one of us. Things have gone a lot smoother than I anticipated, mostly because our children are so spread out in age.
I'll keep this post short for now, as I'm still perfecting the art of finding online time with so many demands on my time, but here is a quick photo of Anna in wool legwarmers I knitted up for her. I made the blanket she is lying on too, out of wool jersey, doubled over and sewn together, and trimmed in a simple blanket stitch.
The legwarmers were made with a plain merino wool I found here in Japan. The gauge is 6 stitches to the inch and I cast on 36 stitches. Very simple.
Each sibling is very much in love with our little Anna, and I'm beginning to think this four-child thing is going to be a great adventure.
