My WIP (work in progress) this week was actually just completed – a pair of mittens for the Pine Ridge children. There is a special drive in the fall to supply each child in the K-12 school with a scarf, hat and pair of mittens. At all times, I have a scarf on one set of needles to work on while watching TV and a mitten on another set of needles to work on during the day when there are no distractions. So far, I have two boxes packed to the brim with warm winter wear. These mittens are from a basic pattern that I developed over the past couple of years and this time I added a Fair Isle design.
I finished my WIP from last week, a child’s scarf in Bubble Gum and sparkly white yarn, using the Ridge stitch.

Beautiful project! ! I am sure they are welcomed when received! ! You are most generous with your labors!!
Those are really cute. Lovely work.
Wow, that’s a lot you’ve been working on all summer! Those mittens are so cute! Could you use help with yarn? I’m not a knitter, but a quilt shop near me bought out the yarn from a store – some is old stock, and it’s all acrylic, sport weight and worsted weight, a little bit baby weight. If you think you’d like some, let me know and I’ll go get it for you next week, my donation to the children. I’m sure there will still be some.
Thank you, Susan, for your offer. I have a ton of yarn that I’m trying to use. You’re so nice.
I love these mittens. They are beautiful, and I can sure imagine a little person smiling when they receive them to keep their hands nice and warm. 🙂
