A note from the mom of a baby in the NICU at University Medical Center Princeton/Plainsboro:
Thank you so much! My baby is currently in the NICU at Princeton hospital and has received a beautiful pink crocheted blanket from your group. She also has several hats - I guess they are also from you? My favorite is a tiny lavender one done in a seed stitch. It is so hard to have a baby in the NICU, but it warms my heart to think of all the love and effort your volunteers put into each piece. She's so tiny and has so many monitors and things; it's wonderful that she also has something cuddly. As a knitter myself, it makes me so happy. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
