After all the lovely Izzy dolls, hats and facecloths were picked up, I received an email from the organizer with another request. I have copied part of her email below and am hoping there will be some interest in knitting for this worthy cause. This will be an on-going project, so you can drop off these easy little hats anytime, and we will make sure they are delivered to the organization for distribution. There is a pattern on their web page for both a knitted and a crocheted version . This can be found under the donate tab. If you can't print it out, I am happy to provide you with a printed copy of the pattern.
Thanks, as always, for your continued support in these very needed endeavors. Your help is so appreciated. So lets see what we can do for them.
From time to time I have a box of odds and ends of yarn that you are certainly welcome to use for this project, so if you need some yarn come on in and check out the box.
Thanks so much, and Happy Knitting!
"Health Partners International of Canada website is http://www.hpicanada.ca/ is looking for help with knitting tiny hats for babies in Haiti and Africa- often born with a birthweight of only 4pounds.
They pack Humanitarian medical kits containing medications ( which they receive free from Pharmaceutical companies in Canada) and always include a few izzy dolls and little hats. We carry these kits every year to the Dominican.
When I went to pick up our kits this year the warehouse supervisor told me about the desperate need for these tiny hats."
