January's Collection: An Awesome Way to Begin the New Year

The Madison Knitters' Guild charity knitters have done it again. They set a new record for monthly donations with a total of 152 items!! This included:

94 hats (preemie to adult)
7 pairs of mittens (infant to adult)
5 pairs of booties and socks
11 scarves
35 sweaters (our monthly target item)

Can you believe the generosity?? Many members brought more than one donation and some brought a bag full of items. Just think of all the people in Dane County who will be warmer and healthier because of your efforts!
Here's a variation on the Carol Anderson Wallaby--without a hood and without pockets. A cute, cute warm sweater.

There were eleven Baby Surprise Jackets from Elizabeth Zimmerman's old pattern. I got photos of a few of them before my camera's battery died.

Someome made a cute hat to go with this BSJ.

Baby Surprise Jackets in all sorts of colors and stripes!!

Two BSJ's with hats and one with mittens to match.

And hats to match sweaters and hats that are unique!
A soft little sweater with a parade of confetti hats.

Wee hats, scarves, slippers and a stack of sweaters for a larger child.

Bright and warm hats!

Snowflake hat and hat/sweater duo.

The blue sweater is oh so soft; the white sweater zips up the back; the striped hats are for preemies and little babies, other hats are for bigger heads!

Warm double knit pom=pom hats to keep ears and heads warm in January!
Gorgeous, warm patterned mittens.

Below is a stack of baby sweaters made by someone! Each of them cuter than the next.

Little booties will keep little feet warm.
Knitters, be proud!!
