Description

When my oldest friend (I’ve known her nearly 25 years now) announced she was pregnant last year, I knew I wanted to make her a gift (and unlike my Nana and my mum, my knitting is not up to much – they would be about five before I finished a baby blanket).

Then she announced she was expecting twins so knitting was definitely out.

So I searched my stock of Burda patterns and got some baby jersey towelling and white knit rib and got to work…slowly (good thing pregnancy lasts nine months)

Once I got past the tracing and cutting out stage, it progressed pretty well, apart from the time I spent exclaiming about how cute it was.

Sewing the rib knit around the sleeves was abit of a trial requiring some careful stretching and careful sewing.

The poppers were a lot of fun with a hammer.

I added a duck motif to one and a glittery frog to the other so even though they are identical, there is some difference.

I went to visit Jack and Harrison, who were born on March 25, this week and they are just adorable.

I think it might be a while before they are wearing the overalls, being twins and a bit premature, they are very teeny (Jack, the bigger twin, is only just out of the smallest size of baby clothing) but I’m very excited about watching them grow up.
