So I have another Twiddle Mitt done in Paintbox by loveknitting.com. The yarn was given to me for free to try from the company. It is very soft and not splitty. Great for this type of project.
Al sent me a link to the PURPLE baby hat project started in Oklahoma. They are asking for thousands by Oct. 1 . The have to be 6 inches high, I think, and washable. They must be purple. The purple is to remind people about shaken babies and the danger shaking poses.
I used to remind parents that an innocent sibling could shake a baby. I will knit a few with the purple left from Loveknitting. I’ll do it to honor my mom, the woman who just loved babies. Had 6 of her own, 10 grand babies and 6 foster babies.
IF you want to knit for charity, you might want to join in. Just google Oklahoma purple baby hat request and the details are there.
