Knitted Hearts

I couldn’t find what organization, if specifically, was doing this but after the Tree of Life synagogue attack in Pittsburgh last year, some people had made these knitted hearts and hung them on trees and placed them in public spaces across the city. Pgh HandMade Hearts was one of the organizations making these I think.

I saw the first one hung on the window of a diner and absolutely needed to know what it was. It was a beautiful blue with delicate threads inviting me immediately for something. I knew it had a story to tell me.
