One of my very good friends had a baby stillborn, and she said that the pictures they took for her at the hospital, and the baby clothes they gave her for him were so helpful in getting her through the hard times... I think this is a wonderful idea. Is there a KAL already??

I think with a little nudge to the Knitting Elders, this thread will orb over to the KAL forum.

(Ghah, can you tell I've been watching reruns of Charmed? I'm so sick.)

Oh yes, good thinking! Knitting Elders, if you can zap this thread over to the KAL forum for me, that would be fabulous. I just wanted to have the note up here in General Knitting for a day to make sure everyone has a chance to see it. I wasn't sure if everyone reads the KAL forum or not.

Punkhippiemom, I'm sorry about your friend. It's so good that she was able to talk to you about everything. Thank you so much for joining in!

This is a wonderful idea. I bet all of us have little balls of yarn which would make some nice tiny hats.
Hats and small blankets, that's what they need? What about fetal demise pouches? I have seen patterns for those on the internet as well, and I know that parents really appreciate those.

I have been knitting baby things for a friend of mine who is soon going to be an aunt. So I have lots of leftover baby yarns. Please count me in, I'll look for the KAL.

Count me in as well!! I used to work in Labor & Delivery and when we used to have patients deliver very early, even the premie hats were too big. I had a young girl once deliver twins at 18 weeks, and they were each smaller than the palm of you hand. What a great project you have started Kimmie

Count me in......

I have already been making things from my stash that I will never use, just for the knitting practice and I have so many little balls of yarn from my crocheting days that I was going to toss. Now they can be used for something good.
