Charity Mitten Pattern Announced!

The first charity to get a fund raising mitten is the American Red Cross! Proceeds from sales of this pattern go to the American Red Cross.  The American Red Cross has a rich tradition of teaching Americans to knit, and a tradition of helping those in harm's way through education and donations.

This mitten was inspired by the families of servicemen and volunteers deployed around the world.  It's a quiet way to remember an organization supporting Americans in harm's way at home and around the world.  Let's make this first project a blow out!

Learn more about the American Red Cross here.

Here is the sample as knit by the intrepid Colleen.  It's feeling a little proud of itself.

Thanks in advance for supporting this great cause!
