Next Two Weeks

Knit Unto Others buttonThis morning's snow got me in the mood for a spot of charity knitting. I do a fair bit all year 'round that I don't record here, but this batch seemed like appropriate blog fodder.

Locally, Margaux is collecting afghan squares (actually, 7x9-inch washable wool rectangles) for The Hoboken Shelter silent auction. Suggested patterns and specs may be found here. Completed rectangles may be dropped off at Patricia's Yarns in Hoboken through November 30.

A bit farther afield, Margene and Carole are sponsoring Knit Unto Others, with a suggested list of charities and projects, also through November 30. I'm making child's mittens using Sivia Harding's pattern and oddments of Mission Falls 1824 Wool, colorway 026 Zinnia. Here's this morning's knitting.

Mitten on snow

Snow on leaves, mitten on snow.

Wonderful mittens, wonderful picture. I think I got more snow in my neck of the woods.

I think Chappy may have been the only one TRULY happy about all that snow this morning. We got about 4-5" of it and there was still enough at lunch time to make snowballs for him to chase. It's all gone now, though!

Hey, I was digging the snow! And NJ drivers for being impatient to boot handled themselves nicely on my commute!

Nice mitten!

i've been meaning to check out that hoboken store. My LYS in Ho-Ho-Kus does the square thing too. Thanks for all the suggestions.
