Sweet little premie hats.

I just finished a custom order for two tiny little hats that are for premature babies. A customer of mine has a little one in the NICU, and ordered the Flower Garden hat for her little girl and ordered the Sweet Striped Beanie for the little boy next to her. The customer told me that the little ones are not allowed to wear any clothing except hats, so she wanted her daughter to have a very cute hat.

It was such a treat to knit such tiny little hats and imagine the little heads that they will keep warm. Just so you can see the difference in size - check the pictures here. The larger hats are both 3-6 mos size, and next to them are the premie sized hats that I just finished.

If you know of someone who needs custom sized baby knits - be sure to drop me a line thru my Etsy Shop, KnitzyBlonde, I am happy to work with someone on custom orders. Especially little premie things!

Have a good weekend!

this is lovely - I hadn't realised preemies weren't allowed to wear anything except a hat, so I can see why lovely little hats like the ones you knit are in such demand. My own babes were woppers - biggest was 9lb2oz *wince*
