It has been so long since I've been here on knittinghelp, so I feel somewhat embarassed to come back asking for your help when I haven't been keeping in touch at all, but hopefully you will understand.
Just now I got a call from the bereavement coordinator at the hospital where all the lovely items you made for the babies went. She told me that they had gone through all of the little burial pouches and they could really use more. They mean a lot to the parents and apparently they are really good for taking pictures. Generally they wrap the baby in the pouch and then an additional little blanket. They still have some of the blankets left.
These are very, very tiny items, so they don't take long to make. Here is a pattern link. http://www.touchinglittlelives.org/knitbunting.html
I think there are other patterns out there as well, but mainly she wants the little hood and ribbon ties for these tiny little ones. Some of the ones we gave them last year were lined and some were not. She didn't say anything about a preference, so you could do what you like. If you can help with this, please do. I can send you my address if you have some to mail.
Please note that I have moved to a new house in the same town, so if you have my old address, it will still get to me eventually, but I'm happy to let you know my new one.
If you can help with this, it will truly be a gift for parents who are grieving. Just knowing that someone out there cared and made something special and handmade for their little one will be ever so meaningful.
Thank you!! If you have any questions, please ask.
Oh dear. I always signed my name with little hearts and I don't see the hearts icon...
