This post's Swedish word/phrase: "Babymössor går snabbt att sticka!" = "Baby hats are fast to knit!"

My boyfriend's best friends are becoming grandparents again. This time to a pair of twins. The babies are due first week of January but are expected sometime within the next two-four weeks.

I thought I'd knit them baby hats. I made up the pattern (simple 2k2p-ribbing, stockinette for bit and then star decreases followed by a bit of I-cord). I used this wonderful merino sock yarn from CindyH's store (Cherry Blossom Fibers (http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=106197)). The yarn was a gift from sara_jayne.

I started the second hat this morning.

This post's Swedish word/phrase: "Jag är nästan klar!" = "I'm almost done!"

So, I've finished two hats and three mittens so far. The fourth mitten is OTN and will be finished tonight or tomorrow. I've made up the patterns as I've gone by.

Those are all SO adorable, Anna! I can't believe everything you've been able to do with one hank of yarn!

Anna, which color is truer, the first picture you posted or the current one with most of the stuff done? They sure are adorable!

This post's Swedish word/phrase: "Idag är det onsdag" = "It's Wednesday today"

:hug: Thanks for the nice comments! I've finished the fourth (and last) mitten. If everything goes as planned we'll be meeting with the parents-to-be this coming weekend and I plan on giving them the hats and mittens even if the babies haven't showed up (out? :teehee: ) yet.

I think the second picture show the colours more accurately.

And yes, Sara, isn't it amazing what that hank has produced? A pair of mittens for me, 2 baby hats and 4 baby mittens. And Is till have more yarn left!!! :heart:
