    A group of us have already been knitting and crocheting these hats (found the pattern on the Warm Up America site) but probably won’t be able to get into Manhattan. May we instead send the hats to the Studio?

    This is a wonderful project! My twin granddaughters were born at 26 weeks and were very small. Their NICU in Pittsburgh had many donated items of the type – knitted hats and quilted throws made and donated by volunteers. Keep up the good work!!

    I have been on a personal crusade making hats for the neonatal intensive care units and have sent them to Hershey Medical Center, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Montgomery Hospital, St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children in Philadelphia and Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia.

    I started out with Hershey as a way of thanking the doctors and nurses who were so kind to my niece when she lost her baby Elizabeth Anne Stewart at 28 weeks. It is a wonderful way to use up yarn. My sister Sue has joined me in this campaign and when we run out of yarn, we purchase it at thrift stores, being “ultimate-recyclers!”

    We make orange hats with green pompoms for Fall/Halloween, soft yellow with orange pompoms for Spring/Easter and the most adorable Santa hats for the Christmas season! Everyone is happy….the nursery staff, the parents and the babies!

    When I was a newborn Nursery Nurse., I knit a hat for every newborn to wear.
    I loved doing it.
    I also knit toe warmers for people who were wearing casts and donated them to the Er of the Hospital I worked in.
    Your Knit caps will get me back into making them again as soon as I finish all my Christmas scarves
