Awhile back, I posted on Facebook about one of Mom’s favorite projects.
For those of you who haven’t read it:
It’s heart month. In loving memory, of my mama (who concidently had heart disease) I am undertaking one of her favorite projects–making red hats for newborns. The purpose of the project is to raise awareness for congenital heart defects. I know not everyone can crochet or knit, but you can help in other ways like donating yarn…I will be more than happy to share the free patterns I have found. Who’s with me?!?
I thought today was an appropriate day to share my progress, or lack there of…it takes me awhile to knit those little hats. I am only on the second one. I may have to switch to crochet because it goes faster, but I love making those darling little hats with the heart on them. I just can’t do that with crochet. Or can I?
As an aside, I had to deliver my granny squares to Melissa, my new crafting buddy. I was surprised when she gave me 13 red hats for my cause. She has made one each day since I made that post. I was so excited!
