Hope this link works
If not, here is the post:

"Calling all knitters and crotcheters!! St Thomas’s hospital have run out of bonding squares on their Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

Bonding squares are pairs of 5 inch by 5 inch knitted or crotchet squares (any colour, design, and wool - please do be aware it needs to be washable in a machine for accidental spit up moments). One square is put with the poorly baby, and the other square is with the parent, and then these are swapped over daily. They are so crucial for our little superstar premature babies, our sicky newborns and parents who are separated at such a stressful time.

Please please please dig out your knitting needles if you can and help our tiny humans

Please send them to:
Neonatal unit
St Thomas hospital
Westminster bridge road

Thank you! The babies and mummy’s will be so happy"

I'm digging out my Crochet hook now, I hope some Mnetters can help out too smile

Ah well done Max 😊
I’ve just put this same thread in Chat and was looking for somewhere more knitters might see it!

I saw this thread last night in "Chat" and have decided to do a few pairs between now and Christmas.

I've got a stash buster WIP to finish and in January I'm joining in with Attic 24's Woodland blanket CAL so inbetween the two I'll be happy to help.

Is there a deadline for the squares?

Apparently they've been inundated and don't need any more.
