My name is Nancy Markus and I live in Cleveland Heights, Ohio. I have been lurking on this blog for quite a while and decided to take the plunge and share some of my sweaters with you all. I had a wonderful time knitting these sweaters for this last campaign---18 sweaters in all since March 10th when I started. I teach middle school math part time and my students are used to seeing me carry needles and yarn---they get me through boring teacher meetings and plane trips. I have sent other sweaters this year and I just learned something that I want to share. DON'T PUT NAME TAGS IN THE SWEATERS. LOL The volunteers not only had to pack but they had to take out my name tags---ooops.
I really love to make sweaters with pictures and names, but I know that isn't allowed, so I am into stripes and yokes. My goal is to use up as much of each skein as possible. I'm wondering about sizes. How big is too big? How small is too small? Seven to fourteen year-olds are really quite different in size. Just wondering what others have done.
