MIttens for Akkol

I've joined a new knitting group- Mittens for Akkol. The purpose is to knit warm woolies (mittens, hats scarves, socks and sweaters) for children in orphanages in the far north of Kazakhstan. The winters are bitterly cold (temps as low as 40 below zero), and the kids need to be warm! Goodness knows that's something I can empathize with. I just joined today and I'm super excited to get to work!

My realtor belongs to this group, too (or one very similar). I think it's great that you'll have a reason to knit all year long - and people to give your beauties to.
Oh, your mom was over the other night and had the BEST purse - I think it was green and felted with a little purple and a celtic button...you made that, right? Very nice.
