Volunteers for the American Heart Associatio and Mended Little Hearts in West Michigan
are celebrating American Heart Month by knitting red hats
for all babies born in February at participating area hospitals.
We’re raising awareness of heart disease, the number one killer of Americans,
and congenital heart defects, the most common type of birth defect in the country.
so I have been knitting . . .
slow going for me with that bum finger I have on my right hand
(maybe you remember my bird feeder incident)
but I finally figured out a new way to hold and knit
and I am almost finished with number one
hats are to be finished, "turned in" by mid January
several of us Western Michiganders are crocheting or knitting hats for
preemies and newborns
