purple hat If you love to knit, please consider making a few of these small baby hats to take to your local hospitals who need them or to crisis pregnancy centers and so on, to anyone who helps save babies lives.  The larger sizes can be donated to homeless shelters, and women's shelters too.  Using the color PURPLE is for a new program that is springing up across America-- to help save babies lives from Shaken Baby Syndrome.  For more information go to FACEBOOK here: https://www.facebook.com/purplecrying
