Save the Children

I posted back in the Fall about the "Caps to the Capitol" drive that Save the Children was undertaking, to raise awareness of infant mortality rates in developing countries and to encourage knitters and crocheters to make hats for newborns. Here are the two hats I made:

I should have added something to provide perspective on size -- these are TINY. A colleague asked me if they were mug cozies. :-) The tan hat is crocheted from a superbulky wool, and the aqua hat is knit from DK weight cotton. I mailed them off to Save the Children on Wednesday, along with a note to President Bush asking him to provide funding for maternal and child health programs in developing countries. The hats themselves will be sent to Africa and India, I believe.

Those are adorable! I have a little cotton one to donate to that same cause through my LYS!

Those are so cute. It's great to know they will be going to babies who really need them.
