  1. Those are awesome-looking fingerless mittens! Had Debby not just recently knitted me a pair (for sitar playing in cold environments), I’d be tempted….

    • Aren’t they awesome looking? I’m so excited that I’m going to have a chance to make them! I’ve been hesitant about it — because I wouldn’t wear them. This is the perfect opportunity for me. I get to buy new yarn, knit something, and not feel guilty about it because it’s for a good cause!

      Though you know, you could always use a second pair. . . *G*

  3. Getting mittens and good cause!
    I know about the need to knit and have it appreciated; this is a great way to do so. You are inspiring me to knit something for Capclave (our local auction); we have a silent auction for the SFWA medical fund.
