For the September shipment to the Inuit communities in Northern Labrador, the Warm Hands Network has specifically asked for baby blankets and socks. The need for socks I understand - everyone in the community needs several pairs. By September I hope to have at least a dozen more pairs knit and ready to send.
Anita explains the priority placed on baby blankets this way:
[Community leaders want] to give every new baby born in the year a blanket when they come into the clinic. It gets young moms into the clinic (a definite plus) and I have to think it sends some good kharma into the atmosphere when a teeny baby gets something they will have around them for the next few years.
