Later that evening I went to my regular Israeli dance group and a dancer friend and my contact at Vista Hill was there. I realized that I had the sweaters in
the car and so I showed them to her at a break. She was
flabbergasted and really speechless to see the beautiful work done on the behalf of the needy children that come through her facility. She was so excited and started to plan out how the sweaters would be presented, publicity etc. It got me even more excited and more dedicated to the project.
OK. This is the cutest. My BFF, Betsy Frank, made this adorable pinafore for the project. She has decorated the little flower pockets with "bee" buttons. I can't wait to make this little garment for my new great niece. Betsy and I have had many years of shared projects. We have had a wonderful friendship and I couldn't think of a better friend. Thank you, thank you.
Last but not least, a girly "V" neck cardigan. Cute little heart buttons from Michael's are a nice touch.
So let's see, the count stands at 33 sweaters. I was also given 3 premie sets by Liz Knapp of the North Coast Knitters guild. I will have pictures of them posted in my next entry. So including the preemie sweaters we are up to 36. Yikes. It is really exciting.
Thanks to all participants.
