Knitting – Boomer Caps

Knitting Boomer Caps – craftambitions.wordpress.com

This is the perfect quick project to practice knitting.  A friend of mine is a fabulous knitting, and recently shared her skill with me.  I found knitting quite rewarding while also calming.  Once I got the hang of it, my only problem was – What to knit?  I don’t need another scarf, and my man certainly doesn’t need another homemade toque. I then found a great project – Boomer Caps.

Boomer Caps are small knit caps sent overseas to help keep newborn babies warm.  “Boomer” Cpl. Andrew Eykelenboom was killed on duty in Afghanistan as a medic for the Canadian Military.  His mother started a charity in his honour, Boomer’s Legacy, and among other things they help collect and send knit caps abroad.
