Wife, Mummy, Nurse: Preemie Hats #SocialSummer

30 August 2016

Preemie Hats #SocialSummer

I hate seeing people suffer. (Especially since the only thing I can do is pray, which is most important.) Even though praying for strangers, friends, and loved ones is important, we should try to do what we can to physically help those in need. 

Soon we'll be moving about 30-40 minutes North of where we currently are. I'm going through things and once again realized, "I have so much yarn. What am I going to do with the skeins that have 30-50 yards." 

A light bulb went off! I should knit preemie and newborn hats and see if there's a local hospital near me that will take donations of hand knit hats. 

On Monday, I knit the first preemie hat this year-red hats for preemies. As you can tell, my hat is not red. I think if the yarn was a lighter color, the heart would be much easier to see. My goal is to knit 52 hats (which is enough to qualify for finishing for Geeky Girls Knit's 52 weeks of charity KAL). 

What ways to you try to spread joy? This post was written as one of the prompts for the summer blogging challenge by social insiders.
