By Popular Request
I've had so many requests for info on the Mitten Challenge that I am reposting a very abbreviated version. For the full poop, check the June 11 archives.
Are you ready?
Here's the Summer 2006 Challenge!
It gets cold on the Northern Plains and little kids (and big ones, too) need warm hands! Warm hands for walking to school, warm hands for doing chores, warm hands for playing outside.So, this challenge really is about warm hands.
This is a GRAND OPPORTUNITY to use up odd bits of yarn and try out new patterns.
Who can play? Anyone with a soft spot for kids and a hook or needles and yarn.
Sizes for toddlers through large teens. Plain or fancy. Stripes, checks, flowered with little animal faces embroidered on. The only restriction is that they must be WARM!
Make 6 pairs and send them to me by the end of September. My re-mailing for the Mitten Blitz will be THE FIRST WEEK IN OCTOBER.
Prize drawing. To be included in the random prize draw, mail 6 (or more) pairs of gloves or mittens to the address you'll receive by email if you contact me (clicky-thing on the sidebar for "view my profile" then click on "email me", or email@example.com )
Decision of me is final and not open to scrutiny ;-)
Some prizes already received look like this
and include sock yarn in a bright and a sedate colorway (2 balls of each), bulky stuff (Cervinia Oslo and Lion Brand Kool Wool, two balls and 4 balls in 2 colors, respectively) a great book of knitting patterns, and a pompom maket for the Lover of Poms.
Not shown: stitch markers.
Goodness, that's a dark photo! Rest assured that the yarn is much nicer in person!
