Mittens, lovely mittens for the homeless!

knitted mittens for homelessMittens!!! See me doing the mitten dance? lol 5 pairs of fun colored knitted mittens from our good friend Linda in Florida. Love these Linda. I know I've asked before; but have forgotten and need to post.-- What pattern did you use? These are knitted with straight garter stitch and look like they wouldn't be too hard to make. They're nice and stretching too which is a plus for sizing. I snagged the largest pair for The Bridge and 4 will go to kids with cold hands in the clinics and The Mission. Wonderfully made, and fun colors too.

Announcement for the winner of the contest will be this Friday, the 12th, which should allow enough mailing time from anyone who sent mittens out on the 8th which is the deadline for the contest. That doesn't mean though folks we don't still need them long after the contest ends. Keep knitting and crocheting, please and thanks. 31 pairs thus far. Let's hope we can raise that number a bit with what might still be in the mail.

  1. Here's the link to the pattern if you didn't snag it off my blog...

    They are super easy, and the thumbs are knit right into it with short rows, so no going back after you've made the hand and adding the thumb! Out of all the mittens I've made my five kiddo's these are the ones that have stood the test of time, and rough wear and tear! Kid tested, knitter approved! ;-)

  2. Linda - I hope you don't mind but I copied your pattern (with all your pertinent info) to use later. I am a new knitter (started in March 09) and I have a couple of projects going on right now. Mittens will definitely be on the Christmas list this year!

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?
