I joined here in January so I don't know what is done near the holidays. A couple of years ago I joined an internet challenge to knit or crochet at least 50 infant hats and donate them to a local hospital. I can't remember where the challenge originated as it was forwarded to me.
Would the knitters here be interested in doing one this year? It can help use up small balls of yarn and being small they don't hang down in your lap and make you hot, even in summer. If we start now it's less than 3 per week.
Sure, gg, I would be interested! A few years ago, I crocheted 64 infant hats for some charity that would send them to South Africa. Apparently, many infants die there because they don't have adequate head coverage. They also wanted you to write a letter to Obama, encouraging him to assist in funding for these unnecessary deaths. When it came time for me to send my hats, I was told they only wanted ONE hat, plus my letter to Obama. So, I called every hospital within a 100-mile radius of where I live in CT, and was told (in no uncertain terms!) that they had their "local knitters" and wouldn't have a use for my hats!

That sort of turned me off from making any more. But if you know of a hospital that would be receptive, I would be more than happy to participate with you!!
