It's spring but not so springy so we're going to make wooly fingerless mitts for kids at Ronald McDonald House. Bring 6" double pointed #7 bamboo needles (set of five) or purchase a set from Ina for $5 (personal checks only). As always, we've got the yarn!

Maine Morning Mitts can be found here . . .

See you next Friday in the Winter Garden!
