Over on PreemiesUK facebook page I set myself the challenge of knitting at least 20 items during March. I’m halfway there already with these which are ready to go in the post.
Firstly a few little bonnets, the top left is newborn sized and the smaller ones are from a doll’s pattern but i’m sure they will be ok. They are so quick and easy to do and the pattern ‘pretties’ them up a bit.
Next, sadly, burial gowns and bonnets for tiny babies who don’t survive. I didn’t think i’d find it in myself to be able to knit these but the thought of tiny babies without such clothing is a sadder thought, they all deserve the dignity of clothes.
Now something to raise a smile hopefully.
If you'd like to help, even if you don't knit, nip over to PreemiesUk on facebook and take a look at the type of things they collect and recycle. I'm also sending some white fabric which hopefully can be used in cribs and a pack of used postage stamps. Thanks in advance if you do decide to help in any way.
