The Warmth of Generosity

Last week at a meeting of very clever knitters I was overwhelmed by their generosity.  Four of the talented women made a donation of six sweaters to this project.  I was very touched by their contributions.  The sweaters are just beautiful.  Barbara Levin, who is also the President of the North Coast Knitters Guild and an incredible knitter made this adorable pullover.
 The pullover pattern called Griffin"s Seeded Rib Pullover.  It was posted on
 the Classic Elite website (  I am happy that the sweater
 is a about a size 2 so we can have a selection of sweaters kids rather than just babies. 

Eileen Adler, knitter, teacher and designer extrordinaire gave me two wonderful sweaters.  One of the sweaters, the goldenrod cabled pullover is a the sample that was designed by Eileen and published in the March 2009 issue of Creative Knitting Magazine.  The name of the sweater is Playful Pullover.    The neck line has a little button flap to make it easier to get it over the child's head. 
The second contribution  from Eileen is this adorable, soft and cozy cardigan. This sweater designed by Eileen, is called Rich Ribbed Sweater is published in the March 2008 issue of Creative Knitting Magazine.  
I was showing them off to a friend and she was anxious to get the pattern and make the sweater.  The adorable leaf "button" details are really winners. We were examining the stitch pattern and decided we would have to ask the expert for details.  Did you hear that Eileen? An by the way I would like to have more information to tell all the readers about your  contributions to to the  Guild and to the community at large.  

Once again, Phylis Bates has generously contributed.  Her pull-over sweater with a mock placket is just beautiful. The soft colors are great for a boy or a girl.  Some child will be so happy to be warmed by this labor of love.  

Thanks also go to Linda Erlich.  Linda is a hardworking member of the North Coast Knitters Guild. Linda made two amazing sweaters.  One the very famous Baby Surprise jacket by Elizabeth Zimmerman and the second is an adorable pullover that is made with a specific yarn which 
creates a variety of stripes.  the wonderful rolled collar is a great detail.

I am very fortunate and thankful to have my knit friends join me in the project. XXXOOO
