Though small in size, the caps and receiving blankets are a big help to those who receive them -- babies, most of whom are premature, born at area hospitals. Once a week, the women, who call themselves the Purl & Chain Gang, gather in a sitting room at Westminster Village in Spanish Fort to knit and crochet the baby caps and blankets.

I am in desperate need of a boys knitted vest pattern with a nutcracker on it. My grandson is positive I will knit one for him. Size 7.

Any and all suggestions are welcome. I have searched the web for hours with no result.
God bless. Thanks.
