It's that time again! Mittenz Maddnez
The challenge is - 8 pairs of mittens ( knit, crocheted, sewn, purchased ) to be mailed in October to the Cheyenne River Reservation. Just in time to warm hands for the upcoming winter.
You can read more about it, where to mail, when to mail, rules, etc
on Ann's blog - and she has a contest going on too!
Last year 405 pairs were sent to the Rez - Let's make it more this year!
I've made 5 pair already - but you all know I am not stopping at 8.... Several of us are having a "Battle of the Needles" going on - great fun!
