Clapping for Mittens from the State of Pennsylvania

I'm sooooooooooooo excited with this fantastic mound of mittens!  These are beautifully knitted, soft, thick, warm, paired and tagged male and female.  Please join me and thank our good friend, Judy C from Pennsylvania for this donation of 55 pairs of mittens!!!  Nice dark colors for men........ and a nice variety of colors for women.  Judy you are AWESOME!!

There are 36 pairs for the men, which is wonderful; as they are the largest group living outdoors.  These mittens have a nice long stretchy cuff to aid in it's warmth factor.  Judy please let us know which pattern you used.  I really want to pass this information along.  Some of you may remember, we lost our mitten page on a day when I was trying to do an edit and blogger wasn't working well.  I am in need of posting some good patterns for both knitted and crocheted mitttens.

Keep up the good work.

Today is the first day of June......our focus is slippers.  Please check the details in the slipper tab for size, color, fiber information.  Please remember to attach your pairs and label with size.

  8. Wowza! What a pile! This reminds me of an old gentleman in my home community who has long since passed away that used to knit mittens and give them away to all of the children who he happened to meet. I was one of those lucky children during a few winters. Wool mittens are just so cozy. The recipients of these will be thrilled, I am 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.
