Are you looking for a good summer project? Something small and quick, that won't take much time but will be greatly appreciated by the recipient? I have the perfect solution - Purple Hats for Babies!
CLICK for Babies is an international project that brings awareness to the Period of PURPLE Crying, a normal period of increased crying that all infants experience in the first few weeks and months after birth. This inconsolable crying - which can be very hard on new parents - is considered the number one trigger for shaking a baby, often to a point of causing Shaken Baby Syndrome.
Knitters and Crocheters are invited to support this program by creating hats that will be given to babies in local hospitals throughout October and November. Here are a few tips for creating a perfect purple baby hat:
Please bring your completed hats to Wet Coast Wools by Wednesday, October 1st so that we can deliver them to Children's Hospital on time.
