Baby Hats for newborns

In 2000 I joined a group at the Senior Center and we were making baby hats for the newborns at Naval Hospital. I moved away and made them for Baxter Regional Hospital in Mountain Home AR. I returned to Washington and now live in Poulsbo and my son delivers them for me. I have a couple of other girls involved in the project.

I have recently joined a group that makes hat and scarves for the homeless.
The deliver them to several agencies in the area that provide them to the homeless and others less fortunate. I have made many scarves for them. That is my at home project while I am watching TV.

The baby hats are my carry around project because I can work on them anywhere.

I am using up my stash of many boxes of yarn of the baby, sport or worsted weight acrylic yarns.

In 2001 I made 387 baby hats. I am retired and like to watch TV.
