You may remember I posted back in July about my youngest son being born premature in 2004. He is now 8yrs old and a big strong fella for his age. I was really grateful way back when he was born over 8 weeks early to have hand knitted hats and cardigans in tiny sizes available on the Maternity ward. I have always wanted to 'payback' the kindness. My Blog Buddy Teresa suggested I ask for help from my Blog Buddies to build a collection of items to donate. Another Blog Buddy, Claire suggested the name 'Rainbows' for the project. I know people are busy and there is no pressure as I am looking to donate in July 2013. I am really happy with the work that has been going on so far. Some people have decided to make items to donate to their local hospital and others have decided to send the garments to me to donate to the hospital where Euan was born. It brings a great big smile to my face. I will update on the project as near to the 10th of each month as I can.
Lacey has been busy Crocheting hats and has blogged a post about them over at 'Mina and Me'.
Lacey has been using this pattern Teresa's 10 Minute Preemie Hat. Very cute.
Teresa Kasner is responsible for this Bloggy Idea and has got busy making tiny hats to donate to her local hospital.
I think you will agree there is a lovely growing collection here. I am really pleased and happy. I am fully intending to get cracking and make more items as soon as possible. I have posted a 'Rainbows' page at the top of my blog and there are some links now to patterns. If you have any to add though I would appreciate it. This is a long term work in progress and it is a real joy to know I can payback the kindness. A big 'Thank you' to everyone for your kindness so far.
