A handknitted woolen sweater for each newborn?

How cute is this ?  The municipal leader in a small community in the West fjords, a woman named Andrea, was worried last year that no child would be born in the community so she promised, as kind of a joke to her friends, that she would knit each child born from now on a woolen sweater. The town of 270 inhabitants are now experiencing a baby boom!  She stuck by it and has in one year knitted 11 sweaters 🙂
