Mitten Excitement and Deliveries

I'm excited to report that I spotted at least 3 people making mittens. YIPEE. I spotted mittens done and in the works on Bunny's, Therese, and Crochet Princess's blogs. How cool is that folks! Looking forward to their accomplishments in that area. I've started 2 pairs. The first knitted pair, I frogged; but I've not thrown in the towel. Working on a crocheted pair -- think I'm about 1/3 done with the first one, and working on a knitted pair (partway through the ribbing for the cuff on the first mitt). Both of these require counting and seem to be a little tough on my carpal tunnel so am going back and forth between them and other things. Perhaps as I get more comfortable with the pattern etc, I'll be more relaxed and that will help the carpal tunnel.

Deliveries...I've lost track of some dates, will get with Rae and see if I can back into them. But, I can tell you Jan passed off a large donation to Rae this past Thursday (which was her 4th delivery...I think), and yesterday I handed off our 5th delivery to Jan. I believe Jan might see Rae to pass those on again tomorrow. Will see if I can get dates of her deliveries to our folks under the bridge.

I know people are out there working on items and some are in route to us, all of which is very much appreciated. We had some freezing rain earlier today, trees and walks etc. covered with ice; then it warmed up just a degree or two and some of it melted. If our focast is accurate, we're expecting snow later tomorrow....so you see your thoughtful and warm donations are truly needed.

Many thanks for you all, your hooks, your needles, and most of all your caring heart.



  1. I can't wait to see the mittens. This load of hats and scarves were amazing. I have another friend who wants to join your group...Nancy!

  2. I can't wait to see the mittens! The hats and scarves I'm going to deliver are so awesome. I have a friend who wants to start knitting again...Nancy....just because she saw the bags in my backseat!

  3. This is such a great project! I live in a very cold climate as well (Winnipeg, Canada)... I can't imagine what these folks go through during the long, cold winter months.
    Keep up the good work!

  4. I've just not been able to get into making mittens. I've tried a few patterns with mixed success. Not giving up though. Add that to my to-do list!

  5. Sandie I understand the to do list. I've had socks there for longest time. I've not even tried yet. lol, one day I keep saying.

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
