Not quite twins





Thankfully, I've finally managed a little needlework, in the form of knitting.  Our sewing group is trying to all pitch in and make some goodies for the premmie baby wards.  I've managed to knit two little beanies, both in 4ply pink acrylic [yet more of my niece's stash].  I still have heaps left on the 100gram ball, so I shall be trying out a few little bootee patterns soon.

This is a cute little pattern, and simply changing the size of the needles is sufficient to give one a variety of beanie sizes.  I also like to change the rib.  I'm pleased I purchased a few different polystyrene balls at one stage - they come in handy for photographic props..........LOL.......

I have also started 'hunting' for fabrics which I can use to make some little coverlets.  More to come soon I hope.

I'm very happy to announce that my sister's little grandson was born late last week - both mother and baby doing very well.  Now I can post away the little cardigans!!

Hello Linda, I am sure your Sisters grandson's family will be delighted with the baby cardigans, they were lovely. The premmie baby beanies are pretty .Last year I knitted the premmie beanies for the Neonatal newborn intensive care unit (NICU) and at the moment I am knitting a premmie baby boy cardigan.
