Baby Caps for Caps to the Capital

I think I will have a nice package to send soon. I started the dark red cap on Friday, then cast on the orange one right away. They took so little time and they are so cute!

I crocheted 2 more caps over the weekend and then last night a third one. I wanted to see just how much time it took me to crochet a cap so I timed it last night. Thirty minutes! Such a little bit of time to help save a newborn!

I do have to point out that these are very small. I included a pencil so you could get an idea of their size. These caps would fit on an orange! They are made for very small babies, often premies. Of my 8 children I am not sure even one of them would have fit into these caps. My smallest baby was over 8 pounds and most of them were 10+.

Babies have a very special place in my heart. I hope that these caps can make a difference in their lives.

I am sure they will make a difference Denise. Preemies have to fight so hard for their lives that they can use all the help they get.
