A little crocheted gift












Once upon a time there was a girl named Kimmie, her mum taught her to crochet as a girl. She didn't really like it and was never really good at it.
As a newlywed, she had a girlfriend who was Vietnamese. Thutom could crochet and knit like a whiz. Thutom taught her how to make a cardigan style baby sweater, it happened with just a few words with the how to.
Many years have past, but her words are still planted in my mind. How fun it is to draw on those words, to bless a new baby into the world. This time from my head, came the hat for my Chinese girlfriend's baby Abigail.
Welcome little Abigail, certainly you will be the Father's joy, just as your name says. May His arms always be wrapped around you and may you know His Presence all of your days.

Hi Kimmie
The cardigan and hat are gorgeous. I love the color and the sweet pearl buttons. You are so talented. I can sew but I have never had much success with knitting! Abigail will look beautiful in your gift.
