Preemie Stocking Caps
I have spent a delightful few hours knitting and crocheting preemie-sized stocking caps for the Knit One,Save One Campaign. Barb told us all about it on her blog. If you would like to participate just go there for all the information. I think it is a very worthwhile project and takes so little time and just a tiny bit of yarn to make these teeny, tiny caps.












I'd like to make a few more. It is easy to make one while watching tv in the evening. I like to imagine the precious babies whose little heads will be kept warm this winter.

Blessings,

Your little caps are adorable, Linda. I can see, you made one of the crocheted patterns the Knit One Save one site gave us. It's amazing how fast you can crochet one of those, isn't it? Crocheting in the round is fast.

But I have to say, your little stocking cap from my pattern is just adorable.

Isn't this just the easiest thing you ever did, for such a great cause? I can tell the thought of a tiny little baby in an underdeveloped country, where the moms can use all the help they can get, makes you feel good too.

I'm so glad you've jumped in with me. I think the hardest thing about this whole project is deciding when to STOP making the little caps. They're so much fun to make, and so sweet.

And it just makes you feel good, all over, huh.

So cute. I am sure you have already thought about this....praying for the baby that will some day wear the cap. I always enjoy you stopping by. I would love to watch horses out my window. (O:

I'm seeing so many people jumping on board with Barb to do this precious project. I love when blogland pulls together for needs. Your little caps are just adorable and I know some sweet babies are going to be kept warm this year!

THOSE are BEAUTIFUL! As a grandmother of a little 2 lb 7 oz little preemie 5 years ago...I know the value of every little prayed over stitch! Our Zackary was the recipient of a similar crocheted cap! Tiffany still has it in his baby book. SO VERY TINY~adorable. Zackary is a little sweet boy full of energy. God has been good. I wish I could knit or crochet! Someone in Birmingham did many for the NICU there at UAB Hospital.
It is indeed a blessing to those families!

Linda, your little caps are precious!! I truly can imagine tiny little fuzzy-haired heads in them.

oh my, those are so darling. my mom brings home preemie drug babies from the hospital (she's a foster parent) regularly and they always have the sweetest little gifts from people who have knit or sewn. it really does make a difference.

Those are so sweet...what a wonderful thing to do and to be productive at the same time.
IF I do something when watching t.v it keeps me from snacking...
