For Calvin's Hats...

Can you imagine a baby so small that this hat would fit?
The hats are modeled on eggs.
With the advances of medical technology, babies born too soon and so small are often surviving and thriving and it really is miraculous...
But some times, despite the most heroic efforts, some are born too soon and too small to live. 
That is why Calvin's Hats was created.  You can read more about Calvin's Hats by clicking HERE. 
When I first noticed this group on the Internet, it touched my heart and I made a goalfor myself to make a dozen hats... a dozen very tiny hats.

I just wanted to share them with you and encourage you to check out Calvin's Hats if you are interested in learning more.

those are incredibly small and amazing to think that some little person will wear them. You've knit some adorable ones -- great job!

Thank you for sharing your pictures ! I also knit and crochet tiny hats for a couple of hospitals in my state, MS. I love your choice of yarns, could you share what you used ? Thank You !!

Thanks for stopping by JulieLorayne! The yarns I used are left all over from other projects. The most fabulous yarn is the yarn used for the yellow cap; it's dreamy soft as it contains cashmere (Zen Yarn Garden Serenity 20). The baby blue and white hats on the far right are knit in Baby Jacquards. The pink hat with the daisy is Zauberball in a colorway called "Durch die Blumen". The lavender yarn is Dameselfly Yarns Luxurious Sheep in a colorway called "Pale Jungle Orchid". Three of the striped hats are from sock yarn called Regia Design Random Stripe by Kaffe Fasset in a colorway called "Exotix Easter".
The pink and yellow stripey hat (to the left of the yellow hat) is Brown Sheep Wildfoote Luxury Foot Sock Yarn and the colorway is "Sonata". If you can get your hands on some Zen Yarn Garden Serenity 20... buy, buy, buy! :) Thanks for asking about my caps.

I'm commenting late :)

But I just wanted to tell you- from Calvin's Hats- that your hats are perfect and I love sending them out to families (especially the little flower ones!).

Thank you for sharing your skill and creativity with hurting families.
