Ill knit for girls, as I have 4 skeins of KPs Shine in Apricot. Will just need their names and sizes. Id LOVE to have Julie's hat pattern!
Also....since i will be making another pair of clogs DURING the class that Im teaching, I will donate those (or, Il will tell Chix With Stix that THEY Are donating those, as it will technically be their yarn)!
Do you think we'll receive the list within the week?
Well, I wish I could give you a time frame as to when I'll have the list, but as much as I love our Child Life Specialist, getting to things like this is not usually quick or dependable. I'll keep bugging her!! :-)
Let's do this ... for starteres, I'll just list a couple of patients that I am personally aware of, and I'll make sure that any items get delivered either to the hospital, or to the nurse in the clinic. Here are the kids and some ideas I think would be good for them:
P. - boy; age 19 - loves video games and computer; has a PSP -- some ideas: knitted cozy for the PSP, felted clogs -- must be slip-proof, though, 'cause he's on crutches, scarf, cool hat.
J. -- girl; age 2-3 -- an adorable little girl with big brown eyes, and recently departed lovely brown, curly hair -- some ideas: perhaps one of Julie's lovely hats??? (hint hint!)
J. -- boy; age 6 mos -- this little guy was diagnosed when he was merely 3 weeks old, and man-oh-man is he a charmer! He also has a twin sister & a 2-year-old sister, and the parents have gone to monumental lengths to keep the family united -- some ideas: little boots; mittens; hats; sweater -- is there any way you could do something for his siblings, too???
A. -- boy; age 9/10 -- loves the Cubs, video games, board games, etc.; has been quite sick -- I'm not quite sure what would be good for this guy, but he's really a fun-loving kid. Perhaps a hat, scarf or felted clogs? Think about it and see what inspires you. His mother is also a lovely person, and she has had a lot to deal with. I don't feel like it's my place to share personal information here, but this family has really gone through a lot in the past year. Oh, and there are Dad and big brother, too.
A. -- boy; age 10 -- don't know much about this guy except that he's on recurrence #3 or 4. -- Same ideas as above.
L. -- girl; age 17 (I think) -- somewhat quiet girl; very petite -- would probably love a lacey-edged hat, scarf, mittens ...
A. -- girl; age 15 -- typical teenage girl who would probably love some of the funkier stuff off of Knitty.
That's about all I can think of at the moment. Hopefully, I'll get a list from my friend in the not-too-distant future, and I'll get it out to you as soon as I do.
Thanks, everyone! You guys are the best!
