Double Knitting


No, this is not me learning a new technique. It is about a friend having twins - and me knitting a babydress for both of them. And of course some hats to go with them.

Now, gift knitting is lovely. There is something wonderful about the time one give away - and I only knit gifts for those who appreciate it. And these baby sets were so much appreciated.

When the twins were born I knitted two hats in all pink and blue to give when they were at hospital.

Obviously they are for a boy and a girl. I chose gray for main color in the dresses and pink and blue to differ them from each other.

They are knitted in the best baby wool I have ever used: Rauma Panda.

No pilling while knitting, and it is so good to knit with. No splitting - so this is my new goto baby yarn.

Buttons are always a challenge. I wanted similar buttons and in blue and pink for the dresses.

I went into every store I could find. But noone had buttons alike in blue and pink. But I found some on Etsy that were just perfect - what would a knitter do without internet????

I knitted the smallest dress sizes but with longer sleeves and legs. They will fit by autumn - and that was just fine. Congratulations on the twins!!!

  2. Så hyggelig gjort! Det er ikke alle som orker strikke til tvillinger, det er jo dobbelt så mye, men dobbelt så mye gøy å strikke. Heldresser er det vi brukte desidert mest til baby.
