to use this page to link to other knitters and craftspeople who make things
for little babies, and to hospital neonatal units who would like to receive
And, of course, to any other site that might be useful to knitters, parents
and hospitals as we all try to look after these precious little bundles!
This is my (I'm Christine Cooper - I look after Ray Of Hope!) Yahoo site!
It's a group for all of you who knit, sew, card make and craft for us.
It is also for anyone who knits, sews etc for newborns (from the tinies
to the mighties).
Come in and share your crafts, hints, tips etc. Ask a question on the
subject and we may be able to answer at least some of them. Tell us what
you've made for your Hospital neo or maternity unit. If you work on one
of these units, can we help your hospital with knitted/sewn items?
One of the first contacts we had was Debby in Scotland who did in fact
call her group West Scotland's Ray of Hope. Debby after a while, renamed
her group and we are pleased to say has now formed a lovely website of
their own. Those of you who are keen knitters who live North of the Border
will perhaps wish to help Debby. (Don't forget to tell her where you found
her website... LOL )
Well done Debby and John. All our good wishes from The Ray of Hope.
