One of the members of a disscussion group I belong to has just had her baby - early. 24 weeks old, and just a pound. So I have decided to knit her some baby clothes, as they are much needed. This of course will mean another :) trip to the yarn store, right after I had said that I would be limiting my trips there and going from my stash. But I do not have any baby yarn in my stash, and I think a preemie would have especially sensitive skin. Would organic cotton or Blue Skies cotton silk be soft enough? I have very limited amounts of those anyway, but maybe enough for a baby hat. Or I could be smart and knit them into colour rows; then 3 half skeins may make enough for one Owlie Sleep Sack.
I'm trying to find something to try out patterns on, like my toddler's dolls. If needed, I can try to crochet my own something, but you haven't seen how badly my self-designed crochet projects turn out, as I don't post them. Here is what I have to work with:
If you have any suggestions out there for preemie baby patterns, please send me the links in the comment section. Thanks!
