Last night I finished the bunny for Lindsay. It's yet another pattern by Jean Greenhowe.
And today I made the cards for Lindsay and her big brother Tanner (all stamps by Posh Impressions). The box containing the toys and cards is all wrapped up and addressed, and will go into the mail tomorrow. I just wish there was more I could do.
I guess the best thing to do when you wish you could to more, is to do more, even if it is for someone else. These mittens are for the Native American Support challenge, Mittnz 2008. Oops! I didn't realize the toes of my Crocs were visible in this photo. Weird. These are the Gifted mitten pattern, in the men's size. Meital calls them the Oven Mitts. They're pretty big, but I hope they will fit someone out there on the Cheyenne River Reservation.
Of course, I've already started another pair of mittens, this time using the gorgeous (handspun?) yarn I received earlier this month. I absolutely love this yarn! It is knitting up in the coolest way. I hope to have a photo for you tomorrow, of at least one mitten. I have to find out if this is indeed handspun, and if so, by whom. Then I need to ascertain whether or not this person sells his/her yarn, and if not why the heck not?!
That ought to keep me busy for awhile.
