Making Wool Mittens for Charity

Right now, the Afghans for Afghans project is requesting 300 pairs of handknit wool mittens by November 20th. So, several charity knitters are hard at work on that request.

Here's my attempt at making a pair. I just finished this one mitten last night, and have cast on the second mitten now. I'm using bits of 100% wool yarn that was given to me by a friendly Ravelry member for my charity knitting. I love this yarn! So soft and warm.

I think I'll have to make myself a pair of wool mittens now. :)

Handknit Mitten for Charity

I have been wondering what you've been doing. I like the mitten. I've got some sock yarn that I need to knit into mittens.

Keep up the good work. I look forward to seeing the mitten set when both are finished.

Thanks Nancy! I'm finishing up the second mitten right now, and will post a photo soon. :D
