Baby Einstein for a Five Year Old

Well this Baby Einstein will probably fit a five year old.   I was thinking that with all the cute small sweaters, I should start focusing on some larger sizes.  Hey there are plenty of needy kids that are older than 1 or 2.  We have a few larger sweaters and so now I have a new goal to fill that need.  Were getting close and it continues to be a great project.

I filled out a description on government web site that features service projects.  So far i haven't heard from anyone in regard to the listing, but you never can tell.  www.serve.gov/index.asp  here's where you can list service project and maybe even find one that might interest you.

Stitch By Stitch

Thanks currently go out to two more people that donated these beautiful sweaters.  Suzanne Pineau and Li Ma. 

Suzanne knit this Surprise Jacket.  I was in her shop the other day with my BFF.  I dragged her off to the North Coast Knitters Guild.  It was the fashion show for the "Shawl Challenge".  We had a great time.  BFF was inspired to do some more knitting and so afterwards we headed for La Jolla.  BFF bought some great yarn and Suzanne presented me with "Surprise" donation.  Check out the shop at 909 Prospect Street in La Jolla. I think she has every knitting book on the market. Well maybe not every but a fantastic selection.

Thanks also go out to a student of Eileen Adler.  Li Ma made this wonderful cabled vest.  I am very impressed with the quality of Eileeen's student.  I have heard she is a great teacher.  Her commitmet to the North Coast Knitters Guild and and her creativity surely make
 her an inspiring teacher.  Thanks to Li Ma for her hard work.
