I've been meaning to knit some little hats to give to the NICU at the hospital where i work - they're easy to make and i like the idea of babies (and parents) having a nice little something to remind them thet someone's thinking of them. but i don't want to give the unit something they aren't going to find useful - does your unit recieve donations of hats? are they useful? is there a specific style or textile that's better than others? or is there something else i could make that'd be better? i'm short on money but can spare time here and there to make something.
i guess i've chosen now to get started on this project because suddenly it's a little closer to home. as mentioned in another post, a friend of mine has suddenly found herself needing the services of NICU, and though i can't be there to personally help her, i'd like to do something to help people just like her.

good response, duly noted, will make bigger hats and steer clear of the fluro wools
I'm actually really glad you said the bit about the colours, I get really bored with baby colours and would have gone for brighter tones. I hadnt really considered the possibility of clashing with the baby's colouring!
