Dolls Ga­lore!

More of Our Canada - - In Your Words - Gertrude David­son, Lis­towel, Ont.

I have en­joyed Our Canada and More of Our Canada for sev­eral years. When I saw the “Izzy Doll” story on page 21 of the Au­gust-septem­ber is­sue, I had to tell you about my friend Ber­nice Spit­tal, who is in her early 90s, and has knit more than 900 dolls—she’s well on her way to 1,000! She keeps records of where her dolls have gone—at least 24 dif­fer­ent coun­tries—and has sev­eral snap­shots of chil­dren who re­ceived one of her dolls. Ladies in our church also make them and I too have been knit­ting these dolls for years; most of mine get sent out with Ber­nice’s.
