For the Kids

Thank you James, what a wonderful donation this is. I always admire your knitting skills. The sweater and hat set are going to make someone really really happy. I love the two sided hat. Did you knit that in the round, changing color half way through and decrease both ends? I'm trying to visualize the method.

And the blue and green hat with the design....oh if someday I could knit that like that! These are going to the clinic for the kids, thank you for your ongoing support and thoughtful donation.

Everytime I open a donation from you all I am giddy. You are all amazing. Thank you!

  1. I'll get giddy with you! That scarlet and gray set in the middle is awesome! I know lots of babies that would be quite decked out on Saturdays!

  2. What a wonderful collection of beautiful items. Hopefully I will get some time soon to work on some times to donate as well.


  3. Beautiful! I wish I could knit like that also.

  4. Wow, I can't believe people actually have the patience to knit a sweater, I couldn't do it. A nice donation and a wonderful cause.

  5. Thanks everyone!

    The hat was super easy - I knit one hat in red, then picked up stitches around the brim and knit a second hat in grey. (The red at the very top of the grey side is because I ran out of grey yarn -- that close to finishing! So I had to finish it with red.)

    The sweater didn't take any time at all - the nice thing about kids' sweaters! I could never knit an adult-sized sweater, would take forever. ;-)

  6. What a beautiful sweater and hat set. I'll have to think how to accomplish that in crochet. (The hat not the sweater!)

  7. They were really awesome Sandie...with crochet, back loops? Let me know what you come up with

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
