Lost in a sea of yarn and needles. Lusting after handmade socks and all things lacy


Mittens For Akkol

CIC (Children in Common) is having a mitten knitting challenge this month. Knit as many mittens as possible for the children in an orphanage in Akkol, Kazakakhstan. Baby its really cold there, and these children are very poorly dressed. Visit the site to have your heart moved a bit. Get rid of those odds and ends of wool and whip up a few pairs of mittens. If you live in a warmer climate like I do, but love to work with wool, if you family is less then thrilled with hand knitted items, knit for Akkol. No one will turn their nose up at your efforts.
I have made a button for the KAL, if you like it please feel free to download it to your hard drive.
See you at the mitten round up. We have lots of cold fingers and toes waiting for us.

I would like to thank my friend Paul for rendering me transparent, it sound vaguely naughty but it wasn't :-)

I didn't really need to help you much women are always so transparent. Except when they are completely unfathomable.

That's really cute button! And I love what you said about CIC knitting. That's why I knit for CIC - I love to knit & crochet, and my family (and extended family) does not appreciate hand knits. I love wool, so I knit for CIC (and use up acrylic which I don't really care for, for nursing home afghans)

Thanks for the button--I just put it on my blog! (Now if I can only knit some mittens to go with it!)

Sounds like a good charity, Suzann. You know those mittens will be well used!

I loved your turkey story! The first time I cooked a turkey was for both sides of our family at once, and it came out...undercooked...oops!

Now DH does the turkey, and he does a fab job! I have to make the gravy, but he does the rest, even whips up mean stuffing and potatoes.
