Ok so i am totally excited. This is my second project and one that hits close to home. I knit a petal hat for the nicu where my little guys spent some time. I made some adjustments to the pattern- such as yarn weight, cast on # and I knit it flat instead of round. I am off to take it to the hospital today and see if it is something they like or not, or if they need some adjustments made to style etc. But here are some pictures of it so everyone can see what it is...:woot:

I love those little petal hats! I didn't knit when my son was in the NICU, but these would have been great then. It's so hard to keep hats on them (if you can actually get one on at all) when they have IVs in their heads.

Well I have to say I don't think I would have made it through on my own..merigold was a great help with reading the pattern and answering my late night questions! Also a big thanks to everyone else who helped me along the way:muah:
I have to wait a week or so to find out if the nicu nurses like the idea or they want some changes made...so we'll see.....ahh I hate waiting!!:pout:
