A lot of my newsletter readers knitted these and sent them to Middlemore Hospital, which badly needs knitting for babies and children who leave hospital and go back to unheated homes. They are happy to take rugs, blankets, booties and beanies in any size from prem babies up to toddlers. Wellington Hospital would also love them, see address below:
If you would like to help out, send them here:
Please use wool not acrylic. About 30% of the children they treat at the hospital come from unheated homes so your knitting can help keep them healthy and warm.

The person to contact about baby knitting at Wellington Hospital is the Volunteer Co- Ordinator Trish Lee on 04 385 5999. She will be pleased to receive any pure wool knitting, eg hats, cardigans, rugs, and booties, and there is a prem baby knitting book available with patterns.
