Great Knitting!

Everyone has been knitting up a storm.

The groupʼs project to knit red baby hats for the American Heart Association is progressing well. Bring your hats to the December meeting, and Jeannie will submit them. After that, you can send in hats on your own.

Celebrating the holidays:
  • Potluck brunch at the December 8 meeting. Bring a dish to share and your serving spoon or fork. Carolyn will provide plates, napkins, and utensils.
  • Bring some non-perishable food for the food bank collection box at the Puyallup Activity Center.

Jeannie is participating in a project with the American Heart Association to celebrate American Heart Month by knitting red hats for all babies born in February at participating hospitals. The project is designed to raise awareness of heart disease, the number one killer of Americans, and congenital heart defects, the most common type of birth defect in the country.

  • Hats for newborns and pre-mature babies. You can find a gazillion free patterns on Ravelry, or ask Jeannie for her favorites.
  • Red cotton or acrylic.
  • Medium to heavy weight.
  • Machine wash and dry.
  • Simple hat designs (buttons and bows are pretty but can come off and become dangerous for little ones).
Bring your hats to the December meeting and Jeannie will mail them all in.
