Premmie Babies

My husband and I have knitted hats and blankets for premmie babies at our local hospital, and also we have made teddy bears for our local childrens hospital Kidz First.
My husband collects teddy bears, and has some from all over the world, but is always looking for more.
This is with the intention of opening a Teddy Bear Museum here in New Zealand, to benefit childrens hospitals.
We are still making blankets for the hospital, at the moment we are using up the odds and ends which knitters end up having plenty of, and are making peggy squares which will be made up into blankets. We are always on the lookout for cheap yarn, wool is best having good insulating properties, but it is usually synthetic which is purchased as we are pensioners, and get the cheapest.
