It’s a Mitten Knitting Year!

I knit with a great group of ladies every Saturday afternoon at our local library branch.  Each year the Library puts up a mitten donation tree – and this year a number of us are knitting mittens for kids who need them.  Check out the mittens I have finished:

Finally,  I have added a lovely damask tablecloth fabric IMG_3427 to my Stash for Sale page.  Scroll down and check out all the details 🙂
