Mittens for NH

A couple of days ago I received a letter from Bon of Baby Threads of NH, that stated mittens are badly need in northern NH for this coming winter.  She wondered if any crafters out here would like to help make some pairs and I assured her there would be some help!  So fire up those crochet hooks and knitting needles, put on a good movie or a fun radio station and off you go! 

Any pattern can be used, and any size from baby to mens are needed to help the good folks of New Hampshire stay warm.  For mitten patterns use any that work for you, and if you need some, there are plenty of free patterns on my winter pages:

How soon do they need them?  As soon as you can make them and mail them!  Here are some mailing addresses:

Bonnie Champagne c/o Baby Threads 
PO Box 713
Belmont, NH 03220. 

And by other carriers you can use 
20 Cherry St. Belmont, NH 03220

.
So hug the ones you love and knit some mitts for someone you don't know!

Hi Anonymous,
Hopefully, you get this since I have no idea who you are, but you are more than welcome to make and sell hats made from my patterns (ones with my name/copyright on them).

Other people who have patterns on my site, I can't give permission for their patterns. But my patterns- sure make those hats and sell them! :)
