Bliss asks that to reduce their costs volunteer knitters help by sending items direct to their local unit, and not to Bliss. To find the address of your local unit, and to check which items they have requested to receive, please contact Bliss via their website.
Knitting has always been not only a fun hobby, but a very useful one as well. Through the years knitters have enjoyed creating all sorts of projects; everything from sweaters and afghans to knitted rugs and toys.
It can be a great asset for when the child becomes a teen as this is usually a time when there are many differences between the parent and the child. Any kind of needlework which you share can help to eliminate differences, tensions, and arguments, and bring you closer together.
Bonnie Babies: This charity sends premature baby outfits and blankets to special care baby units around the UK and to parents who need support. A mother who needed a way to deal with the loss of her premature child founded Bonnie Babies six years ago. Bonnie Babies makes premature clothing, blankets, and burial outfits for U.K. Special Baby Care Units and families. Their aim is to show each mother and family that there are people thinking of them and caring for them.
Size: Don’t put too much importance on trying to perfect the size of a preemie item of clothing. There is a great difference between premature baby sizes and so an item of any size should be suitable for at least one baby. As a general guide premature babies head circumference is roughly the same as their chest circumference. The average premature babies chest measurements are 8”-14”. However clothes of all sizes are needed for preemies, so no matter how big or small your item is it will most likely fit at least one baby.
