At a show a few days ago I was introducd to the current project of Save the Children. They are asking for tiny newborn hats – only 9 to 11 inches in circumference to send to some countries where many of the children die from cold and other problems. Their birth weight is much lower than we have here in the US, thus the size of the hats. They can be crocheted or knitted and I’ve figured out what loom to do my work on and have already knocked out 2 with a third on the way. Hats have to be sent in by Jan 2. Here’s a perfect way to use up all those little leftover balls of yarn. Needles ho!
