Knits for a Preemie (20 wks!)

Recommended Posts

Luke was born at 20 weeks (!) to friends of one of my sons,

and the poor parents have been on tenterhooks since.

But hardly bigger than a kitten, he proved to be a fighter

 

I knitted this blue preemie hat, and the cardi, (1) 

which though dolly size probably drowned him,

 

And crocheted two wraps - one in four ply (it is actually turquoise and white) (2)

and one in Baby DK.(3)

 

They hope to get him home on his due date which is in April.

Lovely makes MT.

 

I knit for Preemies UK (if you are on FB you can find them there)

 

Knit wear starts from about 10 inches (25 cms) and is sent to 170 hospitals over the UK or do requests from parents.

Lovely makes MT, you can't believe someone so small can survive but they do, these are the fighters in life. I was privileged to be able to look around our premmie unit some years ago before a new regime and they didn't want hand knits.
