My Newest Little Joy

...is crafting these precious, tiny little hats for preemies!

My best friend Emily is a Respiratory Therapist and works in the NICU where up to 70 tiny babies a day are fighting for life.  Little hats like these help them maintain their body heat and keep them snuggly warm.

It's easy to adjust the size of the hat too, depending on the baby you're making it for. 

I wonder what little ones Em will pass these on to?  I don't know who they are, but I've prayed for them.

They're so cute!  Check out the pattern

There are so many hospitals in need of donations like these sweet little hats.  You can use scraps of yarn from other projects, and they whip up in minutes.  If you know how to crochet and are looking for a simple way to bless others, give this little pattern a try!

Also, Jon's girlfriend Megan passed on the awesome website ravelry.com which is where this pattern came from.  I've quickly fallen in love.  You can share your own pattern, browse through others, and post pictures of your completed projects.  It's a crochet/knitter's heaven!
