A little pocket friend











I have a good friend and ex-colleague who always has several knitting projects and a big heart for other people.
It is just amazing how many babies who have received a welcoming gift with beautiful handmade clothes.
And it is not only her family and friends who get knitted gifts from her. Before Christmas she gave lots of handmade woollen gloves, scarves and hats to people who are less fortunate, through a centre for young drug addicts. The latest project that she is involved in is "pocket friends", small teddy bears that will be given out to children in ambulances on their way to hospital. A personal little friend .....
You can read more about the project here:
"Pocket Friends"
The image shows just a few "pocket friends", there are plenty more that are finished and ready to be delivered.
Well done, Britt!
I don't know anyone else in Norway, who does so much for other people!

Those pocket teddies are wonderful and I'm sure make a lot of kids very happy. Britt sounds like a good person. Could you ship her to the States ASAP? :)

I'm on a little break, Gunn. Take good care of yourself.
