Sorry, I shouldn't sound so nasty, I know. But when you knit for a charity, and put hard work and a lot of money into something, especially shipping it to them, and then they publicly post that your items are worthless, well - I am annoyed! I offered to send them money to retrieve my items, but since they are probably already thrown away it will likely get ignored.
Anyway, here is the message I posted on the blog for the charity, a note I have now deleted:
These were mailed from a relative's house, I was visiting as I finished the final sweater. I believe they made the last shipment, based upon when the postcard was returned to me. My relative had to send the picture because I didn't have my camera.
Top Left: Lite Lopi, doubled. This sweater has short sleeves because it's all the yarn I had. This had been in my stash for a while to make a fulled ("felted") bag but I thought this is a better use. It was going to be just a vest until I finished with one ball of each (I'd started with three of each colour) left over, so I decided to do as much of a sleeve as I could. I know that full-length sleeves are requested, so I thought of this as an extended vest.
Top Right: This was my UFO vest of alpaca-wool yarn, to which I added alpaca sleeves and neck ribbing. I happened to have in stash a few balls of a solid that worked very well with the pastels in the original yarn, and since Ann kept asking for sweaters, I was glad to oblige. It also gave me the opportunity to try a top-down set-in sleeve, and I think they came out OK.
Bottom Left: Red "whatever" sweater. Mostly using up yarns. The cuffs and collar are a brown-red handspun, the rest is this and that of commercial wool yarns such as Muskoska.
Bottom Right: A yarn called "Limbo," knitted double. It is 100% superwash wool. I used the Steppe sweater pattern, with the added collar. I still have a lot of this yarn left, so you will see it in the next campaign as well.
The socks in the middle are Red Heart's Heart & Sole in "Mellow." This is a proper sock yarn in wool and nylon, and I knitted double-stranded for speed.
