Knitting for Newborns

LocalMegan PeronaComment


Click, click, click - that's our knitting and crochet needles whipping out purple caps for the second annual "Click for Babies" campaign!  Click for Babies is working to prevent shaken baby syndrome and raise awareness of "the period of purple crying", the normal period when babies cry, often inconsolably.  Last year the group collected over 5,000 purple caps and distributed them at family birth centers and public health offices throughout Oregon.

You can help by knitting or crocheting purple baby caps now through October.  Visit to find patterns, donation sites and more.  Thanks for helping!

Have a lovely day!
