Marilyn, I am just laughing about the booties. Not AT you, but at the situation.
My Threads of Love group makes little preemie hats and booties and mittens all the time. We knit and crochet them.
One of my friends and I were sharing tales of woe about how hard it is to make them match in size, and we decided to just make a big bunch of them, and then go through and put together the ones that were closest in size. We always say it doesn't matter how big or small they are when we are sending them to the NICU. Whatever size they are they will probably have a baby to fit them.
My best wishes go to the family with the little one. It amazes me how well they do most of the time.
Life is short.
Lick the bowl.
