My continuing adventures in knitting for our local NICU, creating special holiday hats (and more!) for our little Littles in celebration of the major holidays and for their parents to take home as souvenirs.
Every year we recreate a few of our favorite patterns and try new things. Here's a look back at a few of hats from 2009:
One of the fun things about knitting for the NICU is that the hats/socks/booties are all on a small scale so it's easy to start with a basic pattern and then play around with new textures, color combos, try new techniques, and just let our imaginations out to play.
Gene aka The Hubby Who makes suggestions, appreciates my efforts, and who said when seeing the turkey butt hat for the first time "You are so perverse. Those poor babies don't know what they've gotten in to." But he laughed while he said it so I think it was a compliment.
