A Knitter Is Born

Dear y’all,
Rachel has had a baby! Our favorite Katrina survivor tells her tale here.
Mazel tov and blessings! Welcome, small Shelby! Everybody, please send Shelby your best knitting tips. You can’t start too early with this stuff.



  1. I never saw Rachel’s blog till you provided the link, Ann, but I read, riveted, as they raced to Mongtgomery and the hospital. Wonderful story. Beautiful baby Shelby. (Remind me to tell you about our grand Ruth’s birth sometime.) Thanks for the link, and… CONGRATULATIONS, RACHEL!
