My very close friend is having quadruplets. She will find out the combo of genders in a day or so. But, I couldn't help myself and I started knitting. I figure I will make three sets in three different colors for each gender. I have knocked out three adorable little hats and a combination of mittens, socks, and a blanket. I haven't found the exact right colors for the boy sets.
Right now I am concerned for how the NICU with launder the hats to make them sterile for use. I don't know how well the yarn i chose will hold up if they use a high heat wash. I have yet to find a site that can go into detail about what yarn material holds up best to NICU prep.
If anyone has any tips I would greatly appreciate them. This is my first time knitting for preemies.
