I saw in the Charity forum (I think that is where I saw it) that they needed warm hats/mittens for the children in Alaska's Head Start Program (4 year olds) that aren't sent to school w/ mittens and gloves.
I am an elementary art teacher and just traced a couple of the smaller kindergartener's hands when they came to art class so I'd have an idea of the proper size needed for mittens.
Here is the set that I finished.. (I have another hat made and will try to find time to make matching mittens.)
The yarn is a wonderful soft wool acrylic blend that I had purchased when I used to live in Italy. It is tiny little flecks of red, blue, etc mixed in here and there. I had these 2 balls for a few years and I decided that it was time for them be 'made into something' ....
hat and mittens were just 'winged'... so, no pattern.. I did write down what I did on the mitten so I could make another the same size!
NOW, does anyone know the address that I'm supposed to send this to?
