Mr. & Ms. LizKnits are proud to announce the arrival of twins!

Yes, Fetching is done, the delivery has occurred.
just over 50 g, 10pm Friday evening.

Summer 2006 pattern
Debbie Bliss cashmerino aran (55% merino wool, 33% mircrofibre, 12% cashmere)
color 300610, dyelot 901
just over 1 ball
US size 6 (4 mm) metal double pointed needles
started October 3, 2006
finished October 6, 2006

The happy parents are pleased to report that after labor began with the first child on the 3rd,

the first fetching was delivered on Oct. 4. Delivery of the second child began shortly thereafter, the afternoon of Oct 5th.

The delivery was slow and steady. First the cuff became evident.

More progress was made by early evening, but trouble became evident and those in attendance began to doubt that enough supplies would be available for a successful completion of the second birth.

The mother continued to persevere with growing certainty that additional supplies would be necessary (beyond those called for by the experts).

By late in the evening the child's thumb appeared and then late in the evening, the second child was delivered, with the assistance of a second ball of bliss (cleverly purchased by the mother days before because she never believes she'll have enough yarn).

The mother is pleased to report that the twins are nearly identical (with only reversed cabling so the cables twist "fetchingly" towards the thumbs... isn't that clever... to distinguish the two).

The children are now reported to be playing well with each other and with mom.

Mr. and Ms. LizKnits report plans to have additional children in the future. Some of these may be placed with adoptive parents.

LizKnits strongly recommends to others that they consider starting children like these as well.
