Just after New Year's we sponsored a "preemie hat" weekend.
Our goal? 250 preemie hats so all preemies in five local hospitals would all have a Valentine's Day hat. Yesterday we counted 225 hats! Wow!
It's been a constant delight to have you come into the shop with more hats (some with matching booties) and beautiful blankets. It's quite a mountain of preemie items.
Berroco was generous and donated 40 skeins of Comfort Dk yarn in pink, red, blue and white and we distributed that yarn on the "preemie hat" weekend to our hat knitters. Thank you Berroco!
Please remember that we collect hats (blankets, sweaters, etc) all year round and it is a great way to use up leftover skeins of fingering or dk weight yarn.
What a generous use of your time and talent. Thank you to all who participated.
