Hello my friends, old and new,
I haven't been on the boards lately, so there are many new names I see. I posted a note under the knit-along forum, but thought I'd quickly post here as well in case people don't see it over there. I just got a phone call this morning from the bereavement coordinator at the local hospital. A year ago, for a school project so many KHers here helped knit many, many little items for babies that were born too soon. It was such a moving project for me and for others too.
At any rate, she called today and said that they are out of the little burial pouches and really, really need more. If any of you have a little bit of time and some soft yarn to make one or two of these tiny, itty-bitty pouches, they would mean so much to parents who have lost their babies. Here is a pattern that I used http://www.touchinglittlelives.org/knitbunting.html I think there are other similar patterns out there as well.
If you are able to do this, I cannot thank you enough. Please let me know if you can and I'll send you my address to mail them. If you look at the knit-along forum you can see the looonnnnggg but wonderful thread about the project from last year titled Compassionate Knitting.
