I went to the hospital again at the weekend to see my friend and the twins. Unfortunately the babies were too poorly for visitors however, I did get chance to have a coffee with Mum and Dad. I told them about all of you lovely people sending things in for the unit. They were thrilled and amazed at your generosity. They totally understand the importance of hand knitted items and they know how much time and love goes into everything handmade. Hand knitted blankets really do make a difference, not only do they cover the babies but they use them for swaddling in the incubators too.
They wanted to share some pictures so you can see hand knitted items in action.

These 2 pictures were took a couple of weeks ago:



And here are 2 more recent ones:

I have had a few people asking if this is an ongoing campaign and the answer is yes!
Black Sheep Wools is proudly partnering with the Newborn Appeal to help raise awareness and funds for new equipment for those very special little babies.

I was a very tiny premature baby 60yrs ago. I was 13.5ozs, 10″ long and I could fit in my dad’s hand. I lived in dolls clothes for 2 years and there weren’t anything knitted in those days. Keep giving these little ones a warm and cozy start instead of the bare humidicrib I had.
I now teach my 11 yo daughter to knit simply knitted items for premies. All the best to the little ones.

That’s lovely to hear Annette. Thank you for sharing your story x
