Caring and Sharing

Baby Sweater Ministry

Our church has had a baby quilt ministry for many years. They asked for layette items, and I started knitting for them.

Over the past three years I have donated approx. 120 sweaters and booties, plus have knitted bear sweaters for our teddybear ministry. We also have started a knitting class. The baby items go to patients at the Meharry Maternal and Infant Care Unit in Nashville.

Some of these mothers have been known to take their infants home wrapped in newspaper. We only hope we can make a small dent in the difficult times that some mothers face.

I use Lion Brand Baby Soft for most of my sweaters.
