Hi, All

I am currently knitting hats for the Save the children Organisation..here is the website and guidelines

Save the Children (http://www.savethechildren.org/capstothecapital/images/kit11.pdf#search=%22save%20the%20children%20knitti ng%22)

if you like to pitch in and help that would be great :cheering: .... those hats are easy to make and it will save those preemie babies out there.

It kind of sad to know that there are about 2 millions of baby who did not make it to this world every year..... :waah:

thank u for reading this ! :muah:

i believe anything for the babies to keep them warm would be useful....

I read about this a few weeks ago and I'm definitely making some hats. I also convinced one of my friends to try one of these, and she just learned to knit a few weeks ago! We're planning another "knitting weekend" soon so I can help her make a hat then. xxx

Ainee, I agree - check out the patterns they have listed in the info on the website. I had never made a hat before either, but the pattern was great and used fairly simple stitches. Definitely a good hat pattern to start with. Good luck! :heart:

okay so i just looked through the PDF again more closely this time. :teehee: the first time i read it, i had the impression that we were supposed to send our hats to the white house and i was thinking...."ummm...i am pretty sure bad things will happen to any package i send to the white house...someone else will have to send it!" :teehee:



yeah i am pretty sure i am on some watch lists but i really am very passive! :roll:

Brenda. :) LOL You are welcome to send them to me and I can send them on to the White House.

I sure wish there was another address to send it to. These babies need these hats. I understand why they want us to send them to the WH, and I will send at least one there. (As well as any other hats from anyone who thinks thier package may not be accepted). But I want to send these straight to babies who need them. How many babies are going to be born between now and when the package from the White House gets there?

Hello everyone!! :waving:

It is WONDERFUL that you all are participating in this charitable knitting.

I just wanted you to know that we have a Knit A Long going for this - you can find it HERE (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/viewtopic.php?t=18364&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0).

Happy knitting!! :heart:
