first knitting project

There is knitting after giving birth to twins. It involves multiple people holding babies--so I can knit. Every stitch takes a village.

This is my first postpartum personal design project. It's a sleeping bag for a baby who is often cold in the middle of the night, no matter how many flannel blankets he's wrapped in.

Size 15 needles, 2.25 stitches to the inch and wool blend, machine washable yarn.

It's been warm here, but I chose a cool morning to try it out. Thirty seconds after putting the baby in? He was asleep.

The project cost me about $44, but with a $30 gift certificate, I paid $14.

The cost of a warm and sleeping twin baby for one very tired Joanne? Priceless...
