>’T’is often said …

>the best laid plans of mice and men [ and most especially Catsmums ] ‘gang aft agley’

Against all odds and expectations, friend Robyn’s stepdaughter managed to hang onto her twinnies until 39 weeks and was induced today.
Ms Chloe Rose and Ms Ellie Mae arrived a couple of hours ago, fit and well and apparently quite big for twins. [ When I spoke to the proud nanna, they hadn’t yet been weighed, but the expectation, as of last week’s scan, was 6 pounds plus each ]
Net result being that I have had to do some emergency baby knitting this week,

as everything I had already produced was made on the premise that they would arrive early and tiny.

Let’s face it, it is never ever a hardship to have to do unscheduled baby knitting
and the extra cardis, hats, bootees, etc can either wait for a suitable teeny weeny or will be donated to one of the NICU units.

pattern specs:
Saartjes Booties [ a very popular freebie ] – I lengthened the straps to 20 stitches for tieing rather than buttons
Baby Cable Cap [ another freebie from Judy Gibson ] on 4.5mm needles, cast on 28 and did 7 repeats rather than 6.
Hat#2 has a 6 row cable , hat#1 is a 4 row cable as per the pattern
