Yesterday was my birthday so I guess that means that President Barack Obama and I both had something to celebrate! I will always remember this birthday for it's historical relevance.
Now on to more important things. Tonight I finished this little preemie sweater for a baby in the NICU:
It took about 2 hours to make, but I must confess I watched TV while I was making it so it took longer than usual to make. The sweater is no bigger than a sheet of paper.
The knitting group and I plan to make many sweaters and hats (along with booties and blankets) that the babies can use in hospital. The hat pattern that came with with the sweater is huge, so I used a different pattern for the hats.
They're so tiny it's hard to believe they fit on a baby's head, but they do.
If you're a knitter, I hope you will use the patterns to make some sweaters and hats for the babies in a hospital near you.
