Knitting for other Angels

I also took up knifty knitting :) With my new found knitting skills I have made little hats, blankets and booties to give those who loose their babies for whatever reason something to hold on to. I still have the burial gown, hat and blanket that was given to Kaitlin. Its the only outfit that i have that fit her and it was the only bit of clothing that touched her skin. So it sits tucked away. I want to give others something like that to hang on. Since I know others who have walked away from the hospital with almost nothing. It's hard enough to deal with the loss of child but to have nothing to hold is worse. Here is the first one I ever made...i'm still learning.

This one I love, since it's just so delicate looking.

I've also included with each of the sets little bears.
They will be a perfect fit for their tiny hands.

I used chunky yarn for this one. I won't use it again.
But i'm still learning and I believe that ANY thing is better than walking away with nothing.

This is my favorite one to date.
I want to make a larger one for a future baby girl.
I just need remember what dollar store I got the purple from now ;)

Memory Boxes

When Kaitlin passes away we were given many things from the hospital, one was a memory box. It is a simple hand painted box that someone donated. Shortly after returning home i started doing the same thing. These are the first ones I've made and will soon be brought to my local hospital. (The link is for the memory box program which my hospital doesn't participate in, but I do know that many do)
