My friend whose little boy is still in the NICU just had a birthday. She didn't want any gifts...so what I did is I knit up a micropreemie,preemie and newborn hat for a boy and a girl for her to donate to the NICU. I used a pattern by KnittingDaddy for the little white hats for girls...I love the hearts knit into the fabric. For the boys I just winged it. She thought they were super cute!
