Before Pete finished his job at MSF I put him to work on one last p/hop job; measuring the hundreds of small hats you’ve generously made and sent in so we can sort them by size.
Of course he couldn’t resist trying some of them on.
We’ve been really overwhelmed with your generosity, making hats for premature babies and malnourished kids who are treated at MSF’s clinic in Qetta, Pakistan.
One person made a whopping 19 hats (which I think is more hats than I have made since I started knitting) and many knitting groups have got involved too. Check out these lovely hats made by the fab knitting group, Cannock Crafties.
In total there are over 250, yes two-hundred-and-fifty hats waiting to be shipped to Pakistan. Marvellous!
I’m packing up the hats tomorrow to send to the clinic, though they will probably go in the post on Tuesday of next week (22nd May). If you’ve got any hats you haven’t sent in yet be quick.
Some of you have asked if we are going to do this again. That depends on the clinic, they are going to see how quickly they use the hats and let us know if they will need any more.
So once again, a MASSIVE THANK YOU to all of you who have taken part.
Stay tuned to the blog as we’ve got many more patterns in the pipeline.
The address to send your hats to is:
