Issue 230 Magnolia Heart Hat, Stitch Red
Classic Elite Yarns is proud to participate in Stitch Red, a fast-growing new campaign with Jimmy Beans Wool and many others in the Needlearts industry to "stick it to heart disease". When you buy our designated Stitch Red yarns, CEY will donate 5% of proceeds to the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health (FNIH) in support of The Heart Truth®. We asked Tiffany from Jimmy Beans Wool to put the introduction together this week.
In honor of American Heart Month, I plan to give my heart a treat. This cute Healthy Heart pattern by Meg Myers fits the bill--and any average sized head. Since slouchy hats look great on everyone I know except me, I love that this pattern offers an option for a fitted hat in addition to the fashionable slouchy version. Add to that the cozy merino wool and smooth silk blend of Magnolia and you have a hat that provides plenty of warmth and a whole lot of style.
It's easy as a knitter to settle in for an evening, cast on and forget about that all-important 30 minutes of heart-healthy exercise for the day. So, here is my heart-loving plan for the month. Step one: Buy some Magnolia yarn in Ruby and feel good about the cause I'm contributing to. Step two: Reduce stress by relaxing while knitting the Healthy Heart hat. Step three: Put on my newly knit hat and show my heart some love with regular exercise. After all, February is American Heart Month... and the month of love.
