Old Earrings, Knitting and Owl Wisdom

15 Apr

I put out a call at Suitcase Singers for any old earrings that are no longer wanted and I have been given lots of beauties. These I was given last week and am delighted with them. I take my inspiration for my pieces from the bits of jewellery I am given and just want to find time to get on with these!

Our local hospital uses a traffic light system in the NICU (Neo Natal Intensive Care Unit) to show which new-borns need the most support with feeding. They have run out of orange/amber hats and have asked local knitters to get busy. I’ve made three so far and a fourth on the way. When I have made five, I shall post them off. If you are local and want to join in, I’ll send you the pattern.

My lovely SIL sent me this gem of Owl Wisdom.

    Hi there
    Our local neonatal unit and maternity post natal ward use red baby hats to show close monitoring of babies. I think it’s a national initiative

      I think it’s a brilliant idea and very glad it’s a national initiative. Two of my babies could have used them. I’ve made lots of red, amber and green in the past. This call out was especially for amber. 🙂

    Well done with your hat knitting. What a splendid idea. 😱 You’re going to have lots of fun with the old earrings. I chuckled at the owl humor. 🤣

      There is more owl humour to come! The earrings are inspiring – I can’t work fast enough to make what is pictured in my head! 🙂

    Nice earrings, I have one just like the fourth pair here at home. Sure you will make amazing pieces with them.

      I am really enjoying this new found art! I’ll post some pictures as I make the pieces. 🙂
