Caring and Sharing

While so many of us love making things for ourselves and our families, many in the Lion community go further, creating for those in need. Join us in this section and be touched by these true stories of caring and sharing submitted by Lion Brand readers.

Got a story you'd like to share?  Click here to send it to our editors!


When our granddaughter, Cameron Jane Duffy, was born on July 13,2005, at Mountainside Hospital in Montclair, New Jersey, the nursery was running out of little baby hats for the newborns. She was given the last one, which was much too small for her and not very pretty.

I thought to myself, "I could make those" and on the way out the door to vacation at the shore, I grabbed some yarn and needles. I designed one. I have since delivered 40 of them to the hospital nursery and intend to make and deliver more as soon as I finish some other projects. They were most appreciated.

The Lion Brand yarn I use is Baby Soft, which comes in beautiful pastel colors. Cameron's Uncle Jim named them "Camicaps" for our little Cami. If you would like the pattern, I'd be happy to send it to you.

Sincerely, Marjorie Duffy
