Midwife Socks

It was somewhere around the 20th hour after Meg went into labor that both of us started knitting in the delivery room. Our midwife came in to check in on us, and seeing us both sitting there knitting, said something jokingly to the effect of, "I can't watch this..." and walked back out. I noticed that she was wearing Birkenstocks and was in sore need of some nice handknit socks. I casually inquired after her shoe size the next time we saw her.

So here are the socks that I knit for our midwife:


We don't have a picture of her modeling them, unfortunately, but she was a bit floored when Meg brought them in to her 6-week post-delivery checkup.

I'm guessing the lucky midwife was HIllary. Yes?
