I am so excited! I finished my first sweater for Knit for Kids.
Knit for Kids is a program started in 1996 through Guideposts magazine. Through
this program more than half a million children have been blessed with a new
sweater. Many of them this is the first new item of clothing they have ever received.
My mother-in-love would share with us her joy in helping people in need. Although
she was unable to donate large gifts, like the widow who gave her last mite, my dear mil
was also thankful to be able to give whatever she could.
I love to knit! It keeps my hands busy while I’m watching television.
I can’t begin to tell you how many scarves I’ve knit all because I am
a straight line knitter. I don’t like to shape, increase/decrease, count stitches, etc.
This sweater pattern is so easy. Seriously, if I can make it anyone can make it!
Go over and visit Knit for Kids on the World Vision website.

But Jesus said, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them!
For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children.”
And He placed his hands on their heads and blessed them. Matthew 19:14-15
