Take the Pins & Needles Challenge!

This year, the folks at Save the Children are challenging folks to Make the World a Better Place with a Sweater on December 12, which is also known as National Sweater Day! Non-knitters are encouraged to wear their most festive holiday sweater and donate $5 to Save the Children on Dec. 12, but knitterly folks have a special challenge for this year: to knit a sweater for someone special between November 12 & December 12, which Save the Children has dubbed the Pins and Needles Challenge.

Don't worry - it doesn't have to be a full-sized sweater! Save the Children and Vogue Knitting have provided two free knitting patterns for miniature sweaters for those of you who are pressed for time:

I myself plan to knit a few mini-sweaters using the free Sweater Garland pattern above - I think they'll make great ornaments to give as gifts this year! I'll be casting on this Wednesday, November 12, and I hope you'll join me; click here for more information on the Save the Children website!

ETA: One lucky participant will win a $50 Gift Certificate to WEBS
