A quick post to show what I knitted in July for charity. This baby hat and jacket were knitted in 4ply cotton bought from Flying Tiger. The jacket is a lovely little one that knits up very quickly; I’ve made lots from the pattern, which you can find at http://www.viridianyarn.com/product/viridian-patterns/. The hat is a Ravelry pattern http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/easy-peasy-newborn-sock-hat which I adapted by knitting a shorter stem at the top; I thought tying a knot would make it harder to post.
These have been sent off to an organisation which provides clothing for new babies in Guatemala. Maya Midwifery helps mothers who have very little to dress their new arrivals, and also supports indigenous midwives with training and equipment. The website has some pictures of the babies in their new outfits and explains more about what the charity does and why.
