Twin Knits

I finished the baby cocoons just in time. Special K has gone home from the NICU. Poor Baby R is there by her lonesome. K had some trouble sleeping; you just know she misses her big sister. But R hasn't made her way through an entire bottle yet, so they just can't let her go home. Mom, Dad, and little sister will be really happy when she joins them. 

This cocoon, which looks really blah without a baby inside, was made following Laurel Love's Cocoon free pattern. One came out better than the other mostly because it took me a while to get used to knitting on four needles again. (The pattern is written for magic loop, but I don't know it and didn't have time to learn. Never fear, I shall!) Anyway, once the babies were here, I somehow found my knitting mojo.

IRL, the yarn is a soft baby pink!

SB, from a NICU nurse: babies that have been in a NICU sometimes have trouble sleeping at home because it is too quiet after being in NICU. Have parents play soft music for babies :).

So the babies get to be inside the cocoons? Very nice! I bet they will like the snuggliness of them. I bet everyone will be happier with baby R can come home. Poor little thing. All the best to both babies and the parents too!

It must be hard having two babies in two different places, hopefully the whole family will be together soon.

Lovely snuggly cocoons.
