I started knitting hats for the neonatal unit at San Francisco General Hospital after a nurse contacted me about some free yarn I’d posted on Craigslist. She asked if I had any spare baby hats. Did I ever! Over the years, I’ve roped my friends and colleagues into knitting along with me. My friend Helen cranks out hats when she’s not doing Important Doctor Things out in Boston. Here’s a preemie hat i just finished, knit in my favorite blend of extra fine merino wool, silk and cashmere.
