Under the Dome Knit It
Knitters and crocheters—mark your calendar for the next Under the Dome Knit In on Saturday, February 2 from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. in the Museum’s Governor Fifer Courtroom! The Museum welcomes all knitters and crocheters to come down and create charity items or work on your own project.
This quarter’s featured knitting/crocheting charity is Little Hats, Big Hearts through the American Heart Association. Volunteers for the American Heart Association are celebrating American Heart Month by knitting red hats for all babies born in February at participating hospitals. They are raising awareness of heart disease (the number one killer of Americans) and congenital heart defects (the most common type of birth defect in the country). Little Hats, Big Hearts is collecting both newborn and preemie sized hats. Locally, hats will go to Advocate BroMenn Medical Center. For more information about the project and for hat specifications, please visit http://www.heart.org/HEARTORG/General/Little-Hats-Big-Hearts_UCM_487734_SubHomePage.jsp#.
The Under the Dome Knit In is FREE and open to everyone. Light refreshments will also be served. Just bring your own project or the materials to begin a new one. Grab a friend, some needles or hooks, and of course don’t forget your yarn, and come on down to the Museum to “knit for a bit!”
