  1. Ons het ook vests vir die premmies gebrei. Ook kombersies vir minderbevoorregte babas in die hospitale gehekel!

    1. Dis ‘n lekker diensbare projek. Hou mens se hande ook besig. Ek het baie lanklaas rustig gesit en gebrei of hekel. Vermoed as ek eenmaal weer koers gekry het gaan ek dit weer begin doen.

        1. Ek brei in winter en hekel in somer omdat hekelgare nie so warm is om te hanteer as wol in somer nie.

  3. Awe…my son turned 1 years old today was a preemie and the hospital gave us some of these knitted caps. They kept him warm. It was a scary time for us when he was in the NICU but I was very grateful that people volunteered to knit caps and clothes like this because when they’re preemies they’re so small and nothing fits. Thank you for doing this!

    1. Wow, that’s awesome to hear that you received a cap because those tiny ones are always looking for warmth. The real wool from a sheep is also important because it keeps heat in but still lets the skin breath. I love to do this knitting, thanks for your kind words.

  4. Are these for the maternity hospital or do you have a premmie grandchild?

    1. They are for the hospital. I joined a knitting group Last year and didn’t finish it off. This time I finished these for this winter. They have a special packed kidset with pattern, needles and wool. Very easy to do.

        1. Thanks Amanda. Amelia got some from the hospital when she came home. She had difficulty breathing and stayed longer in hospital.

            1. Yes she’s as good as can be now. Her mum was also not well too. She had bronchitis, they both were much better after 2 weeks in ICU. This was in the July when Covid was full on around us.

              1. Gosh – such a worry for you all. I do hope they both continue to improve.

                1. They are good at moment. Stella, daughter in law, was very sick when she had Covid in March. I nearly called the ambulance to take her to hospital. At moment she is okay.

                  1. They have been through a lot. I have a friend in Denmark who is still getting over long Covid, 6-7 months later

                    1. That’s hard to go on when you don’t feel well. Covid isn’t something to play with when you’re vulnerable too.

                      1. Indeed. Covid is not a bug to be taken lightly. Some may be only minimally effected whilst others develop long term after effects. I don’t know if you follow the Finnish blogger, Snow Melts Somewhere, but she has lost her sense of taste for over a year now. Some fruit tastes disgusting to her now!

                        1. I still get times when I am so tired I have to lie down and rest or get into bed early just relaxing. I had Covid in Beginning of March. Thanks I’ll have a look.

                          1. Sorry to hear that Ineke.. That fatigue lasts for ages, from what I have heard. Did all the family had it? Despite being vaccinated.

                            1. I am fully vaccinated and my children still need the booster shot. Bea started being positive, we had to isolate for two week. A few days after Beatrix my son didn’t feel well and then daughter in law. They both tested positive. I was so glad when the isolation days were only 7 days. I still felt okay. I had to take the test before I could go out. Guess what, it was positive. In total I had to isolate for three week because I moved in with my family!
