Hi! My name is Beth and my hometown is Little Rock, but I'm at college in Fayetteville, a city three hours away... Anyhoo, a friend told me about this program that the Children's Hospital is doing. They are trying to raise 10,000 knitted or crocheted hats for the patients at the hospital and for future patients by November 27.
A baby or child's hat doesn't take much time and I know they would really appreciate it.
Here's a link to the website which includes acceptable patterns, but any babyhat or child hat will do. I've made a few "Umbilical Cord" baby hats from Stitch and Bitch:http://www.archildrens.org/volunteer/Knitting_for_Noggins.asp
I think the only restriction is that the yarn can't be recycled material because of infection control issues.
Address of the hospital:
Arkansas Children's Hospital
800 Marshall Street
Little Rock, Arkansas 72202
Thanks for looking!
