I've decided to make 200 newborn crochet hats for the local hospital & crisis pregnancy center in town. So far...I have four done...it's after 0230 and I'm sleepy...so I'll work on that more tomorrow! Here are the ones I've finished.



^those two are the girl hats


^I LOVE the colors in this!

^I HATE the way this hat looks in pictures! it's a really pretty chocolate brown & baby blue.

Lol I'm sure mine will be hurting by the time I'm done. The hospital here gets a lot of military babies, so I know they can use them, same with the crisis preg center. I'm going to spread this out prob into feb, so I will be able to rest some.

How do you do this? I've been wanting to eventually do the same, but haven't put the research in yet on how to get involved. Are you doing it locally or nationally?

Just locally right now. But I plan on having several done when we go home to Tex's next month to drop off at one of their hospitals in Dallas. You should be able to call and talk to a nursery nurse. I called the one here & said that I crochet & that I had a ton of yarn & asked if they could use some preemie/newborn hats & if yes...how would I go about giving hem some. I then had to contact the nursery director(?) and basically say all that over again & then I was able to drop hem off to the nursery. Usually hospitals aren't picky, but I've read that some don't like he color yellow bc most babies are born with jaundice & yellow makes it look worse.

I would eventually love to just pick a random hospital/crisis preg center In the US & just send them hats.
