Mittens make me smile!

knitted mittensThank you Sally in NJ. Look at these fabulous mittens folks. 5 Pairs of wonderful soft, fabulously warm knitted mittens in several different sizes. AWESOME! And 2 cute cute cute pairs of slippers, also knitted. I love the colors in the slippers. The yarn colors aren't something I've come acrossed before. What type of yarn is it? Also, the yarn you used in your mittens is really very nice, what did you use? Always nice to learn about a new type of yarn. Might give me an excuse to go buy more yarn, lol.

April Showers is our month of April's focus. Have you read about it? Please check our sidebar for details. Is this something you can help us with? Do you know someone who'd like to help who doesn't knit, crochet, or loom? Please do what you can to get them involved. Sumps pumps have been running full steam now for a couple of weeks with the amount of rain this area has had, so a poncho..........would be truly well received by those living outdoors in the elements.

**If you mail something but haven't heard back from me in a couple of days, please zap me an email. We've had 2 members wondering if their items made it safely to me. One had forgotten to include a note so I didn't know whom she was to sing out, and one...........was out there floating and floating in the postal world for quite some time. It's always good to check on your items. In addition, If I'm not here to take in your thoughtful donations, my trusty neighbor does; but I then may be delayed in letting you know. So, please always feel free to check with me via email.

**If you crochet and or knit, please check the last couple of days posts. I've left some entertainment for you. Don't want you to miss it. Turn on your sound, and don't have a drink in your hand when you listen and watch. Enjoy.....but keep knitting and crocheting, please and thanks. Wink...wink.**


All donations regardless of size and number are valued. All donations are appreciated, and all donations keep someone warm. We help, one stitch at a time. YOU truly DO make a difference. THANK YOU!

  3. Hi All- the yarn I used for the mittens was "Jiffy" by Lion Brand. It is a #5 yarn, so a bit warmer than the worsted weight. I am so glad you like them!! The yarn I used for the slippers was a worsted weight by Bernat. It is a discontinued color and was on sale. I am not sure what "elf" slippers are, but it is a pattern I found on the internet a long time ago.

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?
