As some catch fireworks in preparation for Independence Day, Marie Maher reaches for her needles.
Last month, Maher made small red-and-white-blue hats for July 4 baby heads. On Thursday, he delivered his work to the Mayo Clinic Methodist Hospital for a one-time vacation.
“It makes me happy. “When complete strangers see hope,” said a 78-year-old resident of Shorwood Saints University. She is so happy that family members will know that someone cares about them as they welcome new life into the world.

For the past five years, Maher has had to insert his knitting needles because of pain in his hands. This June marked her return to her holiday tradition, creating little clothes for families she has never met.
At first he planned to follow the same pattern, but when he was thinking about new horses, he decided to go scoundrel. The result? Ten different hats to fit 10 different babies.

“I like to do it because you know that every child is different to get a unique hat.”
Before the break from the hobby, Maher was a prolific business, creating 50 hats for her birthday. That added up to 250 hours of weaving patterns. He often spent time listening to audiobooks. Death passes about 46 books a month, according to him.
It has been difficult to make small hats in the last few years, but Maher is very happy to be able to do it again.
“It’s just fun. Toddlers in red, white and blue hats. “It’s almost as good as thinking about kittens.” he said with a laugh. (The Kittens were on Maher’s mind as she was recently adopted by one of her friends).
In addition to seeing her daughter, Maher has one main program on Independence Day weekend. Start knitting her baby pumpkin hats for Halloween.
