Ray of Hope web links

I'd like 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 them.

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!

MAIN LINK

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/rayofhopeuk/
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.

They support these families with small wraps, angels pockets, baby born asleep gowns etc. You will find some of these patterns on this site in the patterns collection. There are also patterns and links to other pattern sites on the Cuddles page. Please visit this page if you think you would be able to help Jill and Jacky and the families they give such support to.
