Time to Break Out the Orange and Green Yarn
Our 5th annual pumpkin donation is fast approaching! That’s right, for the 5th year in a row, TPP is creating a baby pumpkin patch at the UIHC and we need YOUR help to make it happen. We’re talking oodles and oodles of cuteness people! Simply use orange and green yarn to make pumpkin hats and matching booties. Afterall, what else are you going to use that yarn for?!
Here is our LARGE donation from last year! Aren’t those jack-o-lantern hats precious?!

This donation is a favorite of the nurses and families. The nurses take pictures of the babes in orange and make cards for the families. We’re talking crazy amounts of cuteness! We hope you will consider helping us create our 2009 baby pumpkin patch!
Happy Knitting and Crocheting. As always, it’s for the babies!
