I try to do my bit for charity here and there. We sent these off in January and Febuary around half are my Mum's and around half are mine.

mmm... complete with uncropped-out sections of photographer...
That's all of the little jumpers together. The pattern is available here: http://www.knit-a-square.com/easy-knitting-pattern.html
We could have done more exciting things with stripes etc. but they're nice and bright and should hopefully keep some kids warm at some point and there's a nice variety of sizes thanks to the differences in gauge! Believe it or not my Mum and I used the same size of needles for the ones at the top... (and for all the others, but those were the biggest (Mum's) and the smallest (mine))

For those interested in construction, here's a photo from before sewing up:

(please excuse the couch)
They're nice and simple and fairly quick: great for stash busting (as are the squares) and simple enough for the bolder beginner's first project.

Thank you, paperface.

I have been a member of the KAS group for some time now, but I'm ashamed to say that I have never gotten around to knitting anything for it.
(I have been knitting blankets for the homeless, for a charity - Blankets For Canada - so I have not totally turned my back on charity knitting.)

That pullover pattern is very simple - but until now, I could not "see" what it would look like before being sewn up. (Not an excuse!) But I shall have a go - soon.
Thank you again.
