It's great to know that your mother used to make knitted animals and given them away to local hospitals must have made her feel really proud of her craft. Thank you for your comment joaniebaby.

joaniebaby on May 15, 2012:

My mother used to make all different animals by knitting or crocheting. Then she would give them to the local hospital who in turn gave them to the babies born there. I even have an old newspaper article about my mother and her "animals." Thanks for your ideas.

Theresa D (author) from England, UK on March 09, 2012:
