Baby Sweaters

I became involved in making baby sweaters right after I joined the United Methodist Women's group in my local church. Layette kits are made and send around the world through our denomination.

When I first heard about the project I was not sure I could handle a sweater project. It took some time but I mastered the pattern and have made 30-40 sweaters to date. I've used Lion Brand baby yarns and some other brands also. Several women in my church district have started making sweaters also. I always carry the pattern with me and encourage knitters whenever I can.

The thought of a newborn baby not having something new to wear was unfathomable to me. It warms my heart to know that somewhere in the world a new baby will wear the sweaters that I knit.
