More then Mitten Dancing Here

mittens and scarvesThank you Ruth! Beautiful work, lovely colors and a nice selection of sizes. Ruth is another new pair of helping hands, and we're thrilled to have her join us in helping the cause. She's warmed homeless here with 5 scarves, 5 pairs of mittens, and 5 matching mitten and scarf sets! All crocheted. Whew....her hook must have been smoking. lol
crocheted scarfWanted to show you a close up of the yellow scarf so you could see her pretty detail in the pattern. The mint green set is the same pattern.
crocheted mittens for homelessHere's a close up a pair of mittens. She used several patterns here; though the basis for all was Bev's Marvelous Mittens. I'm not a fan of doing back stitch singles so have only used that pattern once myself; but in some of Ruth's mittens she altered that pattern and used dc instead of sc. I think if you click on above picture you can see that in the green pair. DC's go faster then sc and seem less hard on the arthritis to my way of thinking. She also altered the sizing a bit. She extended the cuff from where is says 6 stitches to 11, and used hdc. She also moved the thumb up for 4 stitches by chaining 18 instead of 14. Where the pattern called for sl. st. she used sc.

Thank you Ruth for your thoughtful donation, and for sharing your twist on a mitten pattern!

  1. Hi Ruth and welcome to our group.Ilove all your donated items especially the yellow scarf.Keep up the excellent work.

  2. Agree with you Jean, I too love the design she used on the yellow and mint green scarf, very pretty.

  3. Beautiful. Looks like maybe a crossed stitch. Love the look of all the scarves. Although green is not usually my color of choice, there are some shades I really like and the mint green is one. Very pretty.

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?
