One of my New Year's Resolutions/Goals for 2009 is to make at least one preemie hat each month this year to donate.  Now, as quick as this first hat worked up, I know I could easily increase that goal to even one per week, but I don't want to overwhelm myself.  Twelve hats in twelve months is far more realistic for me when I consider all the other projects that I want to do, as well as all the other stuff that I have to do on a daily basis.

Here's the first hat for the year:
(in progress)

(and complete)


Pattern link and stuff can be found on my blog: http://www.uglygrayhouse.blogspot.com


Anyone care to join me on this quest? This hat seriously took about a half hour if not less to make, and there are tons of cute patterns out there.  This would be a great way to use up scraps of baby yarn that you might have laying around!

This is adorable! What a great way to put your crafting skills to use. I think I still have the preemie beanie the hospital gave me about 4 yrs ago. I'm more than sure it was hand crocheted too. It meant a lot to me then, and I'm more than sure these will be just as meaningful to the receivers.

I'd like to join you!

I've never crocheted a hat before, actually. Well...I crocheted a beret once, but it was turned out misshapen and weird! Maybe I will have better luck with this?

I'll check our your blog later and post about it on mine, too.

Thanks!

If you have trouble finding the post on my blog (it's buried by now), just click on the label to the right for crocheting - that will show just the crocheting related posts. Smiley

I think for my next hat, I am going to try this one out from YouCanMakeThis.com - click on Free, and then it's the one for the windowpane preemie hat.
