What do you do with all the sweaters you knit during the pattern design process? I send mine to Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota, USA. There are various groups on the Reservation that collect and distribute items to folks in need. I belong to Bundles of Joy, a charity group on ravelry.com that was created for knitters and crocheters who like to make sweaters, etc. for babies and children. Here are pictures of 10 of the most recent sweaters I sent to the babies of Pine Ridge.
Some of the sweater designs become published patterns and some don't. LOL
