From a reader:
"Dear Bev, I want to
thank you for the Pocket Muggins pattern. I have made hundreds of them
to be taken
to the local childrens hospital here in London, Ontario, Canada. They are really
welcome in the Oncology Dept. I knit them in
bright colours to put a smile on the childrens faces. Thank you once again
& God bless you! Shirley, a Yorkshire lass.
