Hi Jackie! Welcome to the Forum!! Knitting for Preemies is one of my goals too! As a mom of a preemie, I can tell you that all of the handmade items that they get as donations are GREATLY appreciated!! :-) I married an Englishman and have been over several times, but I am not sure if I have made it to Derbyshire! I will have to ask him when he gets home from work! :-) Have fun exploring the forum!

Hi Jackie! That is so wonderful that you knit for the little ones.

If you are looking for patterns, you should join www.ravelry.com if you haven't already. There are lots of patterns there and you can look at other people's work, which is really cool.

There are also hundreds of free patterns at Knitting Pattern Central
