Hello and thanks for visiting my blog. I have been knitting on and off for 50 years and I recently learned to crochet. I love looking for wool bargains and making them into something useful. I mainly knit for charity. I occasionally knit for myself and family members if I find a really good pattern or if they ask nicely!!

Angel and preemie hats.....
Here's a little collection of angel and preemie hats for my Upon Butterfly Wings group http://www.uponbutterflywings.blogspot.co.uk/
Before I returned to serious knitting a year ago I had never heard the terms preemie and angels as they applied to babies. Now I know they mean poor babies who are born too early and possibly do not survive. I love to knit for these babies. While some knitters find it a very sad thing to do, I strangely find it uplifting.
I had lots of small amounts of dk and 4 ply to use up. The smallest thing I can bring myself to knit is one of these hats. I'm not really a stuffed toy or catnip mouse type of person. Any scraps still left over have gone into a little bag and will eventually be joined together into a big ball of random wool. But that's another blog post.
