Angel's Heart Beanies and Blankets

Being a graduate preemie from a local hospital in 1974 and One of the first 4 preemies that survived the first year the unit opened, and having 4 beautiful children who were preemies myself, my family and friends wanted to give back to the babies and parents who are in the unit now, we make beanies and tiny no hole blankets for the babies who need them. We mostly use Lion Brand Thick and Quick.
We try to make 40 to 60 beanies and as many blanket as time allows. No media has been involved. We try and get together as a group every Friday to get as many beanies done. Blankie's are last.
They are adorable and comfortable on babies skin. Parents love them, and when you have a tiny person fighting for their lives a small token as in a beanie and blankie means a lot from someone who has been in their shoes and knows the ups and downs of watching your child fight to live.
