a little warmer now

I won't be getting any points for originality when I mention that it's kind of cold today -- 12 degrees Fahrenheit at 9 this morning (Celsius folks, that is minus 11 for you). Which has finally made me put these things in a box and send them off to Maine, where they will be distributed at a shelter. I'm a little cold right now -- but I am inside my house, with more warm clothes to put on, and a way to make hot food and drinks, and I have never, not even once, had to live with the realization that I couldn't keep my kid warm. Except for the two hats, these things are toddler- and kid-sized, and they need to get on up there fast.


  1. The little sweaters are wonderful! Do you have a link to a pattern for them?
    Thank you!

  2. It is the Children's Neckdown Pullover from Knitting Pure and Simple. It's not a free pattern; you can buy it on paper from many yarn shops or as a downloadable pdf through Patternfish, here:
    It is very well written; I have made it many times.

  3. Thank you for the link. The sweaters are adorable. I also want to tell you that I really enjoy your blog. I find it inspiring. Almost everything I knit I send to charities. When I wane or get discouraged about my efforts your blog gets me up and running, or should I say knitting, again. Even thought you don't post a lot, please........don't stop.
