Since Mitt Romney is the 2012 Republican Nominee I am holding a 'MITT-athon for Charity' and I would love for all of you mitten makers to participate, whether or not you are voting for Govenor Romney; in fact we have participants now from all over the world!  Your joining in to make mittens is not necessarily a show of support for him; BUT it can be a show of support if you feel that in your heart. Either way is fine. He knows nothing of this project and I am certainly not going to ask you who you are voting for!

This world can be a very cold place for many, but if you knit or crochet, you can personally be a part of helping warm the world for someone!  I'd like to see individuals knitting and crocheting colorful, warm mittens, and charity groups forming to knit and crochet, 1000's of pairs of mittens that can be donated to your local charities.

PLACES TO DONATE MITTENS:
Check with your local schools, family shelters, foster care programs, soup kitchens, Police and Fire Stations as they often have to rescue people who will need warm mittens.



Sign me up for the Mitt-athon!

Dig out your fave yarn or wool, and then find local places who need mittens.  You can check with hospitals who might need the newborn size, shelters, and local schools to see if they have a need for mittens.  If you can't find a local place to donate your handmade mittens, click here to find several places who can use your donations to help others.
This is a great project to do with your friends!  Get together once a week or so.  Have a potluck lunch, share yarns, patterns, and know-how and just knit or crochet away.  Let's warm as many hands as we can this winter.  And don't forget to share photos, as I woud be happy to feature them on this page as we get rolling along!
