For The Babies

Image hosted by Photobucket.com
These are the Christmas hats, booties and blankets that I'm sending to The Preemie Project. It may look like a lot, but it doesn't take as much time as you might think to make these little items. In my case, I can knit a pair of booties in an hour and a hat takes an hour or two depending on the size. So, it is very possible to knit a whole set in an evening, two at the most. The blankets go together even faster. This work brings me joy. Can you tell I love workin' for the little babies? I'm going to knit some every day anyway, why not spend a few hours making something for someone else? And still, there is time to knit for myself. I'm loving my new socks and with the weather a little on the cold side (even here in Texas), I've had a chance to wear some of the things I finished this year. My wool scarf kept me warm yesterday and I received several nice compliments. I was wearing nice warm socks too. And, this shawl has seen some action lately. Right now I'm working on mittens from some of this lovely yarn. So, if you've been thinking of knitting for a charity, but weren't sure you had time, I would like to encourage you to give it a try. The Preemie Project would love to have you as a volunteer...something to think about for the new year.

  5. You are not the only one enjoying your work. I got some use out of my scarf and felted hat recently on my trips out West.

    I'm so proud of your dedication to the project. You knit on!
