At the hospital my girls were born in, all babies come home with little knitted hats, I have put them in a memory box for them as keepsakes for when they grow up. What I did was I called that hospital and asked them about knitting the newborns hats. I ended up talking to the Pink Ladies (retired ladies that volunteer at the hospital) and they sent me the instructions for making the hats and blankets. VERY EASY! I want to at least make 3 hats and maybe blankets in a way to replace the ones given to my girls. That is what I would suggest, call the hospitals and see if they have guidelines/instructions to make hats and or blankets.

I like the idea for the womans shelter, I am sure with winter coming (or here), there are some moms who could use something for their little ones.

Good luck and enjoy knitting for charity!
