KnitterCNY(on Rav): http://clickforbabies.org/ Maine is a part of the Click for Babies campaign. little baby hats knit in purple or mostly purple to raise awareness for Shaken Baby Syndrome. The hats should be at least 50% purple and made for preemies to normal sized newborns. I will be collecting them until the 15th of October so they can be sent to the local Hospital for distribution during the month of November. I will be doing a raffle of some kind that each hat will get you an entry... and I'm coming up with prizes... still working on that!
Mother Bear KAL: Doing 2 drawings! received another pattern from Katie at Noteable Needlework, so 2 People will be winners!!! Thanks for the support and the knitting will commence on Sept. 2! So if you don't win, order your pattern now and get that yarn ready to rock! There is also a woman on Rav who wrote a pattern in the round... so once you buy your pattern you can contact her and she'll send you the in the round pattern... Will link her after you all have a chance to buy your patterns! Let's get bears knit for those who would never get a chance to have one otherwise.
