This Is Not a Test


We interrupt your normally scheduled knitting with an emergency knit.

Yesterday, I learned another teeny-tiny baby -- this one much earlier and smaller -- was about to make an unexpected arrival. Using Wendy's Velvet Touch, I made her this little hat last night. (I wish there was something in the picture for scale, it's incredibly small.) As soon as the hat was finished, I cast on for a tiny robe/wrap/bunting in the same yarn.

She's doing as well as could be expected. I wish I weren't getting so good at knitting for preemies.

I'm sorry - I hope everything is okay! Those preemie babies are amazingly strong for such little munchkins! The hat is adorable and I'm sure will keep her head nice and cozy.

Thanks, Cara! Baby A is doing very well, and the prognosis is good at this point. It's just so scary!

Hey Shannon--I have a hat I made for an adult that I thought was too big and zealously felted down to preemie size. It's very cute, but I have no preemies to give it to--could you find a nice home for it?
