when two little girls turn up so unexpectedly?
Well, first is to run up to the LYS to grab some very soft baby yarn.
Preemies need lots of softness
Secondly, peruse patterns for preemies
Thirdly, get out all my little hooks and needles
And, fourthly - get cracking
See how tiny they are?
And their heads are 6cm smaller than this
So they are still too big for them
But they will grow
Funny, how only two years ago, almost to the day, my daughters half-sisters were born at 24 weeks too. They are now 'big' girls of 2!!. I remember the tiny things I made for them.
My twin girls were born 4 weeks preemie, but such a good size there were no problems, and they were treated like normal term babies. Probably just no room to grow in my then, tiny, body :-)
Off to whip out a few more, as I know that's about all they will be wearing
Another thought I just had, is that for just over 30 years, except for 1 year, I have been making everything in triplicate. D3 was too close in age to leave her out of new things. And I felt horrible if she had only hand-me-downs, even if they were almost new - Silly me!!!!
Ooops almost forgot details
The pattern is The Shell Stitch Beanie
