One of my pregnant coworkers, who wasn't due until Christmas, had to have an emergency C-section on Thursday. I don't know all the details but it had something to do with the mother's blood pressure, which the doctors were still having problems stabilizing as of Friday afternoon. The baby is doing better than the OB expected, but he only weighs two pounds.
I was already planning to knit a 5HBS for this baby, but now I think I want to knit something else. I've heard that is difficult to get clothes for preemies around here. The 5HBS does have the numbers to knit it for a 4-7 lb baby, but I am quite sick of that pattern right now. If any of you can point me to a free online pattern, I would appreciate it.
