Warm Hats for Babies

twenty baby hats ready for donation
February 2018 
A stack of baby hats knit with wool, sock yarn scraps was mailed to Brenda A. in Nampa, ID today, and they will eventually be sent to the Rankin Inuit Birthing Center in Alaska. Since the hats are knit with wool, they are not accepted at regular hospitals.
hats from a different angle -  a conga line of wooly goodness
Some of the scrap yarn came from Cheryl O., some from the donation box at the senior center, and some from my own stash.

I find it rewarding and satisfying to turn the odd bits of yarn into hats for the babies.

  6. A beautiful stack of hats! Thank you for thinking of the babies. As I type this I have 36 acrylic baby hats in the washing machine that I will take to the hospital tomorrow. Baby hats are such a satisfying quick project.
    Blessings, Betsy

  13. Those hats look fabulous. I guess I'm not surprised that wool is not readily accepted for baby hats. My granddaughter got a little hat when she was born but it wasn't as nice as yours!
