They’re teeny. They’re tiny. But each one will make a difference to a preemie, whose head needs to stay covered to help retain body warmth.

With the yarn left over from knitting a pair of socks, I am making four of these little preemie hats. I’ll donate them to The Knitmore Girls’ collection drive at Stitches West.

Many thanks to Cheryl Andrews for sharing her free pattern for preemie hats, in many sizes based on the gestational age of the preemie.

Less yarn in my stash + charitable knitting project = FEELING GOOD!
