I'll try to make a pair... but, since I'm in GERMANY and it's already NOV 13.. I'm not sure that they will get there or not?
8*(

I'll stop my current project and start working on them tonight.


I always knit up and send hats (and some mittens too) to Afghanistan.. to a USA military group that donates the items to the street kids, the local schools and hospitals, and to those in the refugee camps/etc... (It gets to the kids quicker this way than using a specific organization.) I teach the children of the US Military.. on an overseas base.. so, I like to support our military personnel that are doing what they can to make life better for the children in Afghanistan.

Yay! Go Jan! Basic mitten patterns are not bad!
I'm casting on a pair tonight.

Thanks my friend, but you'd probably better save those mittens for another charity. I don't think they would get here in time. But, WOW, you sure are sweet and generous!

One more pair
I have one pair nearly done in a pink Lamb's Pride wool.

Hope it helps.

I have done one larger pair, and have started another smaller pair. I probably won't have time for more than that though.

I'm almost done with the 2nd mitten (in purple). I think I can get another pair done in pink before Monday (I figure if I send them priority mail on Monday they will be there by Thursday)! I am using Cascade 220 yarn left over from some knitted princess hats I did a couple of years ago!

PS. I'm glad to see a few more people knitting these up!

All that's left is the thumb on one mitten then I'll send them off to SF!

Yippee!!!


You ladies ROCK!!!

I cast on a pair last night, using red wool. I have lots of bits of wool in a bag by my knitting chair, so I'll just change colors a few times as I go. I'll probably finish them tonight or tomorrow and send them off.

Done! I will mail them early next week probably.

The color is a little off on this picture, but I guess it's close.. They are red and sort of a sagey green.

Excellent!
Just be sure they get to their destination by NOVEMBER 20th.


I just finished my first mitten, made with lots of different bits of yarn. I made sure to leave enough of each color, so that I can make a matching mitten to go with it. I'm casting it on tonight, as soon as I finish this thumb.
