Purple Hat Campaign Knit-In at Legacy

astridpurplehat4The Purple Hat Campaign, sponsored by Legacy Health System, has been a resounding success so far! They are at about 960 hats, almost 100 of which were dropped off here at Twisted! How amazing is that? The goal is 2300 by the end of October, so if you have yet to knit one, get on it!

There will be a Knit-In held at Legacy Emanuel Hospital, in the Atrium, on Thursday, Sept 29 from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm. (501 N Graham.)

Parking will be set aside for this event in Parking Structure #4. Once on campus, just follow signs to Parking #4.

  1. Will they accept crocheted purple hats as well? If so, should I use a “newborn” pattern size?

    Thanks for promoting this!

  2. Oh! I just noticed the reference to crocheted caps in the activities section. Cool!

  3. So, do I understand correctly that we can drop off the hats we’ve made to your store if we don’t have time to go to Emanuel?

  4. Absolutely! You can drop your hats off at Twisted and we’ll make sure they get to the folks at Legacy. Thank you all!
