We started knitting for the neonatal units at St Mary’s hospital on the island, and for Queen Alexandra hospital in Portsmouth, in December 2014. Both hospitals needed lots of very small items which cannot be bough. We knit and crochet cardigans, hats and cot blankets. For QA the chest size is 25 to 32cms (10 to 12 inches) and for St Mary’s 32 t0 41cms (12 to 16 inches).
In the first 12 months we produced a total of 93 cardigans, 132 hats, 43 cot blankets and 19 ventilator bonnets (these bonnets are only for QA). Both hospitals are grateful for everything they receive.
