I also sew/knit/crochet preemie baby blankets for the Madison project started by one of my DDs. The project is to honor my granddaughter who spend her whole four months of life there. We take the blankets down on her birthday.

Bernat has some easy chemo hat patterns.

I often sat with her, crocheting away the sadness. My crochet mentor also left this earth, so I felt very much like a rudderless ship. I turned to crochet and after amassing more stuffed toys than my living room can handle, I donated them to the local Children's Hospital. They were so pleased to have received them. Their goal is to give each child a blanket or toy. By my estimation they serve over 500 kids a week (more for the NICU, hats & booties). So if you are looking for an outlet for your passion of crochet gifts (knitted & sewn gifts also well received) please consider a local hospital or charity.
