A knitting teacher who's fond of Buddhist philosophy. Free knitting patterns, knitting advice, knitting lessons, and anecdotes. My blog is where City Meets Suburbs in design, and where peace meets chaos in my daily knitting life.
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!
