IV Wrist Warmer project closed

I have received the unfortunate news that Children's Hospital LA is unable to make easy use of the IV wrist covers we have been testing as a new community project. The hospital is having sterility issues with the covers, as well as a convenience issue since the IV setup needs to be checked every hour.

—>Fear not! If you have IV covers that need a home, they still will go to good use! Please send them to the Centegra Hospital volunteer coordinator in suburban Chicago, who has been using them effectively in pediatrics as a project of the McHenry County Knitting Guild.

Thanks again for your hard work. We collected 30 IV wrist covers for Children's Hospital, and I'm sure the kids enjoyed them (even though the nurses weren't ultimately thrilled with them. They liked the idea, though, and thank us for our efforts.).
