Labor of love

Volunteers knit caps for each baby born at Beverly Hospital


Healey said she is glad to help out in her own way, but deflected any accolade.

“No pats on the back for me. There are people doing so much more (volunteering) than I am,” Healey said.

“If anyone can knit and purl, they can make a hat, it’s that simple. ... It’s something to do — I don’t feel so guilty sitting here watching TV because I’m knitting, too,” she said.
