Race to beat the babies

Two By Two
Originally uploaded by littlekidd
I have six babies coming into friends' lives in the next few weeks. Two sets of twins, and two other friends who are just having one baby at a time.

So, while I've been looking longingly at my half finished "Must Have Cardigan," I've been knitting a flurry of tiny little sweaters and hats and booties.

These are for the twins. Baby Boleros and matching hats for the ones I know are girls. Knit with Cascade 220 Paints Superwash.

The white and tan hats are from One Skein, and the booties are from a wonderful book called "Knits from the Heart," by Kristin Spurkland. It's out of print, I think, but if you can lay your hands on a copy you won't be disappointed. The yarn is an organic cotton from Plymouth.

These are going in the mail today! Hopefully they will beat the babies. They're all due in May, but you know how twins are. Those mammas better get some sleep while they can!
