* Warm Up America (WUA), which is one of the yarn industry’s major charities, has partnered with Save the Children (STC) on its Knit One Save One campaign to rally knitters and crocheters nationwide to make caps for newborns. The caps, along with basic medical supplies, will be distributed through STC health facilities to new mothers in developing countries to help save the more than 4 million infants who die each year for lack of such basic items as knit caps to keep their bodies warm.
