Hi .. I actually started these because I found a web site with the pattern and called them IV covers. But about a week later there was a message that said the hospital could not use them for sanitary reasons. Then I contacted Childrens Hospital in Houston and the voluteer thought it was a great idea so she checked with staff and they too said no .. no for purposes of IV covers. Well I had already made a few pair so I sent then to the hospital along with some hats hoping they could be enjoyed by the kids just for fun purposes.
I just thought that is there was a REAL NEED somewhere .. that would be a better fit. Thanks for the referral page of Care Wear I had not been there. I think I will try making the Aran hat next.
I will also go ahead and see about the local senior centers ... I know these could fit a real need.
I just might need to work at it a little more . kc
