Wanted to let you all know how we're doing, where we were at this time last year. Thought you find it perhaps inspiring to keep those hooks and needles flying through out the summer. Also thought it might help you decide what you wanted to make.
As of today, June 29th here's where we are:
You can see from the chart the only items we've knitted, crocheted and donated less of todate are Hats and Mittens. I'm pleased to see, and hope you are too that we've knitted, crocheted and donated more of all other items!! Awesome work folks, Thank You.
How fitting is it that we're moving from June to July's focus...and you guessed it the focus is mittens! Mittens will be the focus for the next 2 months July and in August we'll double up with the focus being has and mittens. Some time back we lost a page here when blogger was having some issues. Sadly, that means we lost all our good information and patterns for mittens. Please let me know what patterns you all use. Currently we have only one pattern posted, a crochet one that is basic double crochets. We need some reliable patterns to post folks. Does anyone have a 2 needle knitted pattern they can share?
Things to remember when making mittens....no white, in fact avoid all light colors. Mittens get dirty. Mittens must be paired and tagged with size. No open stitches, even with double crochet they're can be sometimes too much openness if you're not one that crochets tightly. Please consider dropping down a hook size if you have loose tension so the mitt will be warmer.
All donations regardless of size and number are valued. All donations are appreciated. The Power of One is awesome, and when we work together The Power of One becomes The Power of Many.
