Happy National Sweater Day!

Today marks the end of the Save the Children Pins and Needles Challenge, and it also happens to be National Sweater Day! If you missed out on a chance to knit a sweater for someone special during the challenge, don't worry! You can still make the world better with a sweater - just wear your favorite yarny masterpiece and pledge $5 to Save the Children today. It's that simple!

If you happen to live in Chicago, there is a fun celebration tonight at Nina in Wicker Park that's co-hosted by Heidi of the Hands Occupied blog. You can show off your sweater, donate $5 to Save the Children, and enjoy light refreshments and all the yarny goodness you can handle - click here for more details

I ended up making only one mini-sweater during the challenge, and now I need your help deciding which one of my fibery friends will get to wear it this winter. Last weekend, I posted on Instagram asking who wore it best, and now I am opening the floor to you, my lovely blog readers! Here are our lovely contestants: 

Small Squirrel (though he also kinda looks like a mouse?) - pattern from 50 Yards of Fun
Frances the Charismatic Monster
Jerry the Musical Monkey
Stuffed Ostrich from Malabrigo Book 3
