I knit booties and hats for charity through an organization called "Threads of Love". http://www.charlottethreadsoflove.org/
Here are some booties that I make for babies that weigh just over one pound! Here's the pattern: http://www.p2designs.com/images/patterns/DennysJordansSet.html

my son was preemie and i think this is such a wonderful thing to do! im going to try to set something up for our childrens mercy hospital in town. the hospital i work for has a knitting class on campus and ill suggest this (if they havent thought of it already!) i bet the nurses who knit at my hospital will go bananas for this idea.
the booties are precious. makes me tear up seeing how small those babies can be. the littlest fighters for life.

How cool to see all of you excited about that organization! I love to knit for those little babies. Over the holidays, I made tons of christmas sets. The tiny booties were knit with size 3 needles, and they were finished in less than an hour. Very easy, and fun to do.
Here are some of the christmas sets I made. (I also sew the vests and blankets.)
