Well I’ve done baby cats and baby dogs and baby skunks and baby bats and… So why not baby humans. (And I’d like to thank little Gabriel for the inspiration)
There isn’t much cuter than a baby. Oh wait – there’s babies laughing. This is a repeat from a year ago, because I’m busy studying for my German exams.
The other lot of knitting I’ve been doing lately is little woolly hats for Save the Children’s Knit One, Save One campaign. (Another link for USA) Newborn babies lose a lot of heat from their heads. In colder countries, poor babies can lose so much heat that they get pneumonia – and at that point there’s no money for a doctor or medicines. Pneumonia still kills around 2 million children…
I haven’t managed to meet little Saul yet, and I’m not sure when I’ll be able to do so. But in the mean time, I’ve been knitting for him. Actually, did the hat and bootees before we went to El Hierro, and I did most of the little jacket while we were on El Hierro, but I only just got the buttons and finished things off.
