Purple hats to bring attention to "shaken-baby syndrome" are everywhere.

 Click for Babies is a Vancouver campaign which our Auxiliary has co-opted.  Georgina and her knitting partner accepted Anne's challenge and knit all there hats.  Wow!  They will be gratefully accepted by Victoria General Hospital babies.

Georgina says, "My friend/former co-worker is Bev.  (She is a very private person so I hesitate to give her last name)  We started knitting hats in mid-June when Anne asked for knitters at our meeting and finished September 12th

I knit 114 hats
Bev knit 146 hats
Total 260

And, I have my first one finished for next years campaign."
