Creekside’s craft group set a challenge to all members in February to knit 100 hats for babies born at St Mary’s Newport, before our annual craft competition in May. We had checked that they were needed….. ‘They certainly are’ we were told with joy ‘we have over 1000 births every year.’
With no further ado the pattern to use was decided upon and the needles were clicking with members using their imagination as to interpretation of the design.
Each hat different, white or muted colours of the rainbow, some assorted colours, stripes thick and thin with a pompom on the top, they were fun to knit, the result being that the target was reached, we had knitted 120 hats. Well done ladies.
We are very pleased to be making this much needed presentation to the hospital.
