... thanks for sharing and thanks for tipping people off to knit for charity ... happy days ...
That's wonderful! I'll be cross-posting this to Knitgrrl.
Shannon,Thanks very much!! Melanie
Thank you! I was just on the search for a mitten pattern. My aunt is in the late stages of her sickness, suffering from cancer she has given up on treating the illness. She has been getting cold lately in spite of the hot dry summers down here in AZ so I've been searching for a free pattern since I've never made a pair of mittens.Thank you again, you have no idea what this means to me!
I will definitely knit a few pair of these this fall and winter. I love the idea of encouraging people to knit a pair for someone in need.
I've just posted this on the Homespun Helpers blog (http://homespunhelpers.blogspot.com/), a group blog for charity knitters. I'm sure you'll get lots of downloads from them very soon! :)
Brooke, Thanks! Melanie
Wow this is great! Thanx! I better get started now! Our Wisconsin winters get cold and I always see people without mittens.
what a neat idea. I would be happy to knit a pair of these for for someone in need and I will surely pass the pattern along.:D
This is WONDERFUL! I'm including it in the Daily DIY today as well as knitting some myself. Lovely, lovely idea.
Thank you for both the pattern and the gentle reminder to knit for those in need.
I hope you don't mind if I link to this on my little blog thing...and please make sure it's in Ravelry!!: )Yes, there is a link to the mitten pattern on Ravely. And please do share the link on your blog. Thanks.
i deeply appreciate your venture here. sharing and encouraging others to the gift of self is a gorgeous thing to do. well done!
I've been making fingerless gloves for friends for the last month...glad to see I've been keeping up with the trend. I promise to make as many as possible as soon as possible!!
That's terrific. Melanie
Thank you so very much for the pattern--I was a little ashamed of my building stash but now have a purpose. My grand-daughter went on a "mission" this summer and served thehomeless in Seattle--and was hoping to continue to help in her own hometown-this is perfect-we can now pass out mittens--heart and hand--hand-out! Thanks, Nancy
Consider it done! Thanks!
Not a problem. Will do, definitely.
Barring accidents, there'll be a homeless person with warmer hands this winter. My knitting group will be notified.
I would love to make the gloves.They look awesome! where should i donate them to. they will be great for Wisconsin weather.
Miranda,Please donate them to an individual in need who you know or an organization in your area that serves people in need. You could check with local hospitals, the Salvation Army, your local religious organizations. Thanks for participating.Melanie
Thanks for being so generous.
shall do. thank you for being so willing to share
