Hats for Alex needs you! Yes, you! Got an hour or two to knock out a little knit or crochet project? Well, knit a hat for a little one! Alex was a sweet boy who should still be with us, but sadly, isn't. The kind people at the Omaha Children's Hospital did all they could for little Alex. In thanks, Pam has been heading up Hats for Alex.
This year, the Fairieknits podcast (shut up a podcast IS coming) is proud to support Hats for Alex as the official charity. Pam is having contests and all sorts of fun stuff this year.
Hats must be machine washable and for any any child size head. Not just babies.
The Charlotte knitters are already in on this - here are hats from Cristi, Corey and me. And May and Dani have sent hats as well already! (So 18 from Charlotte so far that I know of!!)
My goal for this year is to knit 2 hats per month and get them off to hats for Alex. If you are wondering - I am knitting 3 of the same hats each month and they will be in Ravelry if you want to see which ones I am knitting up. This month I knit the Baby Squash Hat from 101 Designer One Skein Wonders (or whatever it is...I am far too lazy to look at the moment).
this is such a small kindness that means so much to families who have their little ones in the hospital and I encourage you to join in. For those of you going to SAFF, I would like to propose that we do this for this year and donate the hats to an area hospital.
