One of the nice things about being a knitting designer -- especially after spending nearly a decade as a corporate litigator -- is that there is very rarely a true emergency. Yes, there are deadlines, but most of the time we know about them in advance, and there's often wiggle room of a day or so if you need a little more time. But yesterday I had to stop what I was doing to make these:
Two little pre-emie caps. My cousin and godson had his first child, a little girl named Lily who was born about 2 months early. She's only 3 pounds and change, and don't you think it was worth postponing the other things I planned to work on to give her some handmade, sized-to-fit caps?
