Baby and teen hats

I have now for three years made baby and teen hats, on the loom as well as knitted with circular needles over 400 hats that are taken to a nursing college. As part of their education the students travel to many countries world wide and they take with them newborn kits to donate to hospitals and other organizations where they are needed. The teen hats are for young people who are homeless or have run away from home. I have also made chemo caps with fun fur and some are taken to countries where the wearing of veils causes the hair to fall out. The fur gives the illusion of hair and the hats are well liked. The easiest way to work those is on the loom.
Some hats for toddlers have been crocheted. A few lap-afghans are in the process for an eldercare facility. They are really warm made with Homespun. It helps keeping me warm too in the cold months as we keep our heat thermostat low.
It is a very rewarding pass time.
