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!!!
