More Charity Knitting
- prayer shawls for our church ministry,
- hats & mittens for the international families -- also part of our church ministry,
- hats for www.knit-a-cap.org,
- and recently I started making wool mittens for Macuwita-Sni (on Yahoo) (and here on Ravelry) a project for the Cheyenne River Sioux in South Dakota
The red mittens in my last post are planned for Macuwita-Sni, as are these red and blue stranded mittens. These have been a fun but frustrating exercise. I do not have a pattern to work from. I just thought I should add a simple stranded pattern to make them a little thicker and warmer. HA! The first mitten didn't work out too badly but trying to make the second one match was really a challenge! As my husband likes to remind me, "It's easy to make ONE of anything alike!"
I have ripped out many, many times! But I think I finally have it. Now to see if I can figure out what to do with the thumbs!!
