Welcome Claire and Liam

There is a certain goalie coach that has been a wonderful resource and mentor for our family and our young hockey goalie. A few days ago, I received a photograph of his brand new family with the recent addition of twins!

These hats are knitted with love for Claire and Liam. This one was knit with Claudia Hand Painted Yarns - Fingering Weight 100% Merino Wool on size 2 needles using the Open Top Preemie hat pattern from here.Liam's hat was knit with Lana Grossa D-85080 Gaimersheim yarn that is 80% wool and 20% Polyamid on size 2 needles with the same Open Top Preemie hat pattern from above. Since Daddy is a hockey coach and they are from a fellow hockey parent, I thought it would be fun to cinch the tops with the lace from a hockey skate. I've also included matching twisted cord ties for the hats for the "off-season".
