a mom in our spinning guild asked for our help in creating preemie caps. her daughter was a preemie and spent 83 days in the NICU. her plan is to collect and donate 83 hats (one for each day her gal spent in the NICU) on the baby's birthday which just happens to be thanksgiving day. i was so easily pulled into this project. i love spending the time planning and knitting for someone who is going to appreciate the product. here is my first one. it is a swirl hat and the variegated yarn just worked so well with this pattern.
and not to be forgotten.... here is the remainder of my tour. i have all the blue jeans spun, ready to be plied. i have 8 ounces of naked to spin then it will need to be plied. by sunday. feeling the heat!!
