  • I'm volunteering now

    Finally took the baby blankets to the hospital yesterday. Planned on jsut leaving them with the woman at the front desk but she said the head lady for the baby volunteer would want to see me and get my name for a thank you card. Glad I went down. They have a volunteer group for knitting baby hats. They can't use the blankets in the nursery anymore due to germs but will pass them out when the babies leave but they do need more volunteers to make the hats. She asked me if I wanted to join but asked first what it involved. Told her I don't feel good enough to be traveling or doing much of anything really. She said I could go to parties, craft fairs they hold those type of things but I didn't have to go if I couldn't. Then they will supply me with the yarn to make the hats and there is no time limit to get them done. I was so happy when I left yesterday. Makes me feel good to make the little hats for them> those they use in the nursery to keep them warm. they stopped using booties since most of the time they didn't stay on. I stopped and bought one skein of yarn so I could get a start on it. Plus take it with me to see if it passes. The hats I did make were way to small and comparing to half of the hat I have been knitting they were only doll size. Oh well.
