Mittens for Mitten Month

Mittens, Mittens, and more. Thank you Annemarie from New York, lots of chap sticks (24), and mittens ( 4 crocheted). I'm a person that can't go anywhere without chapstick, and I'm in doors. I'm not living outside in the elements like so many of our homeless. Chapsticks are a wonderful addition to personal care items. Glove/Mittens of varying sizes to fit those cold men and women living outside will be so very much appreciated Annemarie.

  1. Great donation Annemarie! I've tried crocheting mittens and have failed. So "congrats" to you, they look great. Wow, on the chapstick. I too use a lot of that. I think I have a tube in every room in the house plus each car!! Can't live without that stuff, great invention lol.

  2. Great mittens! So nice that the dark colors won't show dirt!

  3. I am the same way, I need chapstick(blistex in my case) and never thought about that need for the homeless. Great thoughtfulness.

    Liz, I have a pattern that is great. I tried many many patterns and failed and finally was given this one by someone. Just made my first successful pair. If you want the pattern email me @ sherry.keever at yahoo.com.

  4. Hi Sherry,

    I would love the pattern. I tried to email you but my email came back as "failure" to deliver. Could you please email me at

    Thanks, Liz

  5. Annemarie, what a great donation! Love you mittens and gloves and I know the men will too! Chapstick, what a great idea! I am going to put that on my shopping list too. Keep your hook flying!

  6. Sherry do we have the pattern you used here on the blog in the mitten tab area?

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.
