    Carolyn, I sent you the link via your inbox. Let me know if you have any questions. Yes, I do buy the old sweaters at Goodwill, Salvation Army, consignments. Friends have given me some of their old sweaters too.

    Anyone else want the mitten making video?

    Cayuga, how were your gorgeous mittens received by the oh-so-lucky recipients? I'm betting your mittens were one of the best gifts ever!

    Thanks MG. Yes, people really loved them and I had so much fun watching them select their mittens. Some knew right away which pair they wanted, others took forever deciding, trying on almost every pair ( and there were many pairs to choose from...25?). One woman, a dear friend who really has trouble making up her mind, took 1/2 hour! But it was really fun watching her go back and forth between the various mittens, exclaiming over them all.

    I still have a few friends to offer mittens to. After that, I plan on taking the remaining ones to a program in town that offers ancillary services to people with cancer. It's a wonderful program. Anyone diagnosed with cancer has quite an uphill battle and support really helps psychologically.

    Thanks for asking MG
