Yes. I am behind. I have dishes to do and laundry to fold then hat 16 will be finished. I plan to finish 17 today too. Dinner is in the oven so maybe I will make progress on hat 18.
I know I will hit 40 in 40. But truth be told I usually knit the mini and micro sizes. The only request I have gotten is for smaller sizes. But that was last year for a newly opened NICU.
So while I still plan to knit a dozen or two of them, I am focusing first on larger preemies. Partly because I may be sending these to a different hospital. And I assume all sizes are needed.
Speaking of needed, just once I would like to know if a hospital wanted the bags I send. I would send more. I know staff is busy. But I also know from friends how much that hat means to parents.
I always include my e-mail and a note on the bag saying: for more or different hats: nancyknitsoften@gmail.
I am not looking for a tax slip, affirmation of a job well done, or anything they don’t have time for. On the contrary, I am trying to keep them from having an endless supply if something they don’t have room to store.
So if I don’t hear a thing I presume they have plenty of hats. Maybe that’s wrong of me, but it seems logical to me.
I am off to knit. 😉
