emergency mitts

emergency mitts, originally uploaded by gradschoolknitter.

Even though I'm swamped with Christmas knitting and prepping to go home (which includes trying to read all the things before I leave on Friday so that I don't have to carry an extra suitcase full of books with me) I agreed to knit an emergency pair of mittens for the charity drive at lovelyarns.

They're still down a few pairs and the school really wants to hand them out on Friday. If you are local and can get over there today to pick a kid (they were very colour specific!) and knit a pair up in a night (go bulky yarns!) I'm sure Sue and Hampden Elementary would GREATLY appreciate it. I'm actually going to call her today and see if there is anyone that would appreciate a pair in any of the bulky yarn I have at home so I can knit another pair tonight.

Great mitts! And so nice of you to drop everything and make them! You should take a second to stop by my blog and enter to win a prize in the charity knitting contest I have going on. Anyone with a US mailing address who has knitted or crocheted for charity between Oct 1 and Dec 31 is eligible to win goodies.

Thanks Sara! I've posted and if I get to that second pair I'll let you know!
