Put your hands together for Mittens

Day 14 of Jack Otis Memorial Month

Fabulous mittens! These are all crocheted. Love the nice long cuff on the blue and gray pairs. That adds extra warm. So nicely made, Suzy D. And those nice large warm black, red, and gray ones are awesome! I've got to find some time to get some more patterns added to the site, would love to add the patterns you used. Are they patterns I can post?

Tip: Remember to leave tails of several inches when changing yarn and tug your ends in while you're crocheting and or knitting. Avoid tying a knot and cutting, almost guaranteed to unravel.

  1. I love this mitten pattern. I'll send you the link in an e-mail but they are designed by Carol Ballard at Cobbler's Cabin. I wqent up a hook size and extended the cuff.

  2. Great donation! I personally have second thumb syndrome.

  3. Thanks Suzy, trying hard to catch up and do want to add this pattern, as I thought the mittens were fabulous.

    Many of us have thumb syndrome psmflowerlady...a harder item to make for sure.

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?
