Mittens

It was drawn to my attention today that there are several children at the school where I work who don't have mittens.

Little red fingers and hands do not look good!

I had taken in a few pair that I had extra; but they were used up. One girl had a pair of socks on her hands.

So, if anyone who is reading this wants to knit some mittens and send them to me, I'd be more than happy to take them to the school and put them in the now empty mitten box. Or, if you have extra mittens at home that aren't being worn.

You know what, if you don't want to send them to me, take them to your own local elementary school - bet there are kids there that could use them.

I will be doing some myself, but first have to finish a pair of thrummed mittens that were ordered - gotta give the money making stuff priority, sorry.

Dorothy,
I would like to knit a pair of mittens for your school but I'm so slow that winter will probably be over by the time they are finished. Still, I can try.

Dorothy, how lovely and kind of you to help with the kids who need mittens....if I didn't have a few knitting deadlines of my own, I'd jump in.
