Knitters Wanted !!!!
There is a lady in our church who responded to another lady in another church for knitters. She is asking for a call of help to family, friends and neighbors. Her request is for jumpers to be made for newborn, Aids suffering babies born in the African Continent, many who are sent home from hospital wrapped in newspaper for warmth.
The jumpers are to made from acrylic yarn (No baby pink, blue or white) bright and mixed colours are best as these garments may never be washed. The pattern is very simple and is in one piece. If you are interested in helping the pattern is below and you can email me for a forwarding address for the jumpers.
