That is one of the saddest things I have ever heard.....

I have extra yarn if anyone needs any to knit for this cause. PM me and I will mail it out to you.

I've just found this site today, while looking for charity knitting information. What size do you envision for the small baby blankets? I can knit baby blankets on the bus and the train.

I'm working on a set right now for preparing a tiny baby for burial
(about 1 pound).

Here are the patterns I'm using:
Here's the hat pattern (I'm making the smallest one):
http://www.dimbleby.net/knitting/myp.../preemie1.html
Here's the bootie pattern: http://www.p2designs.com/images/patt...ordansSet.html
I'm also going to make a gown with this pattern:
http://www.geocities.com/tatt3r/knitxsmallraglan.html
And a tiny blanket with this pattern:

Here's my progress so far:


I still have to seam the bottom and back of the booties, but that will only take a minute.

Thanks, Katie, for your interest.

Thanks, Sandy, for the patterns and suggestions.

The need is for any size----premmie to full term to several weeks of age. These tiny little ones need to be wrapped in love and remembered. Size is not the issue as much as love and prayers.

Blankets can be any size, 12, 16, 18" squares. Hats for premmies to to full term.

Please say a prayer for these tiny babes and for their mothers who felt they had no choice but to abandon their child. They will have to live with that for the rest of their lives.

Thanks, Sandy and Mary, for the information. When I have a few blankets ready, Mary, I'll obtain the mailing address. And yes, I'll remember these babies and moms in my prayers.

www.bev'scountrycottage.com has a long list of patterns for these kind of items. I would be interested in making some for your cause, but it will be after Christmas before I can start. I don't have any yarn suitable for these items at the present. Sandra from SC
