Little Hats, Big Hearts! 2017

Posted on Posted in Events, Inspire, Projects, Shop Updates

Once again we are collecting RED HATS for babies born in February!

We are happy to support the American Heart Association in their efforts to educate new moms and dads about heart health for their babies and themselves.

You can drop off your hats anytime during during shop hours, now until December 30, 2017.

Your yarns need to be soft, washable, DK, worsted or Chunky weight, and RED!

We have a number of yarns that work very well for this project.

  1. My Favorite (Superwash Merino- chunky, worsted or DK) I ordered all the shades of Red in worsted.
  2. Encore Worsted
  3. Encore Chunky- I ordered special for this project
  4. Dreambaby DK – also ordered special for this project
  5. Comfort Worsted
  6. Vintage Chunky
  7. Tatamy

This is a great stash-buster, too! Just remember not to add any embellishments like buttons or beads or anything that could be a choking hazard.
