AIDS Baby Jumpers


It seems everywhere I look knitters are taking up needles for the AIDS babies of Africa. The tea room at work looked like my regular SnB last week with several women knitting these little jumpers.

Today's Canberra Times contains an article on women living at Araluen Village in Weston Creek, who are making a contribution. I use Kate Leith's picture from the article.
If you are interested in knitting one or more of these jumpers or a little doll, the PDF patterns for a jumper is here, and for a doll, here. Further details can be found at AIDS Net.
