My mission for the next couple of weeks is to knit tiny bonnets for premature babies. I was recently contacted by Sunrise Senior Living and asked if I would be interested in supporting and publicising their latest Knit For Winter campaign. This year they are helping First Touch by knitting blankets and bonnets for premature babies born at St. George's Hospital in London. I'm a Londoner and love to support local causes as well as those further afield.
Sunrise Senior Living very kindly sent me this yarn. I would have used my own yarn if I had any left. But I spent the summer knitting through my supplies of 4ply baby yarn and couldn't really justify buying more.
I chose to knit the hats rather than the blanket as I already have a large blanket in progress. I have set that aside temporarily even though it is almost finished. The intended recipient won't be born until March! So these little warm hats are needed more urgently. I should be able to knit several with this 200g of lovely King Cole Baby yarn.
If you fancy knitting a simple blanket or some baby hats, see here for details and patterns.
