Anyone who likes to knit or would like to learn to knit, you are needed. Allen OB Unit is asking for baby caps to be knitted in any purple shade of soft, baby-friendly yarn, using any baby pattern.
Your knitted caps will be given to babies to help educate parents and other caregivers about the "period of purple crying". A normal, although frustrating period of increased crying all infants experience in the first few weeks and months following birth. Frustration with an infant's crying is hte number one reason someone shakes and harms an infant.
You can help by joining the group every Thursday afternoon at 1 p.m. in the library basement.
If you have some purple yarn that you would like to donate, but are not able to knit, donations will be accepted.
If you have any questions contact Jean Kruse or JoAnn Dunlavey.
Lend your hands to raise awareness about a life-saving project - "Period of Purple crying" and help keep babies safe.
