Sew and Tell: knitting for hospital babies

I love to knit. But for some reason about two years ago, I put down my knitting needles mid-K1-P1 and haven’t picked them up since.

These baby items were made by my mother. She volunteers at the local hospital where all newborns receive a hat and pair of booties. The hospital provides the yarn, which is prewashed and the volunteers knit like crazy to keep up with the demand.

Who can resist these adorable, tiny baby items? So, if you like to knit and have made enough scarves to last a lifetime, check with your local hospital to see if they have a newborn knitting program.

What a great incentive for me to get out my knitting needles again.
