Organized by Manuela and her daughter, Sarina - who was born premature - we will be knitting baby hats to be donated to the hospital where Sarina was born. These baby hats will be knit in the Pussy Hat style. As an adult, Sarina is a dedicated knitter, and has made over 23 pussy hats!
From Manuela and Sarina:
Sarina was born prematurely at 24 weeks weighing 1 lb 15 oz. "I’m born with hiccups," Sarina simply says. "I belong here and have a right to be independent. I’m going to work for it."
Sarina first knitted Pussy Hats for the Women Marches and soon had many followers wanting to buy her beautiful knits. Each hat she sells allows her a taxi ride around town.
This summer she wants to give back by knitting and donating her preemie hats to the NICU at UC Medical Center Cincinnati, OH, where she was born. Each hat will keep a tiny baby warm and bring joy to the parents.
