We have been overwhelmed by the response from the knitting community to our Precious Purls challenge. We met our goal of 75 hats and/or blankets for the month of January. There were so many people who made hats that we decided to give a Della Q project bag the two top donors.
With more than 900 preemies born at Winthrop Hospital each year, we have set a monthly goal of 75 item. Pattern suggestions and yarn are available at the shop. The hats use a small amount of yarn and are a great way to use up your leftovers. Each month, there will be an extra incentive to entice you to pick up your needles or hook.
For February, for each item donated, you will receive a raffle ticket. At the end of the month, we will pick a winner and they will receive a pair of Knitter’s Pride needles.
