Warming hands of the Homeless

crocheted mittens for homelessAnother pair of mittens for mitten month. Adding this pair to our totals, but they won't be part of the competition for the prize for Beth's Mitten Challenge. I made this pair using Beth's first pattern and a smaller hook. Though the yarn was knitted worsted it just felt a little thinner to me; so used the smaller hook to minimize holes and add warmth. It's odd, but no doubt you've all had this happen. You can buy yarn on the same day from the same store, the same brand, style, type etc. But 2 colors of the same yarn will feel different with regard to thickness and weight. Dying must do that?

Hope you're all busy knitting and crocheting mittens for Beth's Mitten Challenge/Mitten Throw Down. Remember you still have time. Deadline is Nov 8th which is 15 days away (counting today and the 8th).

I've been working on another corner to corner ghan (knitted); and am assembling some squares from Rose Marie for another ghan for Faith Mission.

  2. So true, Sandy! Yarn dye lots, the hook you use, the condition of the hands on the day, the weather. It all affects our crocheting.

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?
