Two Lonely Sweaters

Once upon a time, a very long time ago, there lived a lovely woman with the talent of knitting. She lovingly made two beautiful sweaters with her own two hands and she generously offered these sweaters for two children in Uganda. Now every fairy tale must have a bad guy and I fear I may be the one. The number of gifts to bring grew with each trip and these lovely sweaters were often left behind…until one day when all those left behind gifts and toys finally made their way across that big, big pond.

Two children from Bubembe Island received your beautiful and lovingly made sweaters. The nights are cold there and I know these kids will enjoy them. The children at this island school have no uniforms as the children of all the other schools do. If I may be so bold, given my former behavior, would like to knit a vest for these small ones, all in the same color and style? They could have the start of some kind of uniform for school and be just like the other children in Uganda schools.
