Three pairs on the way

I didn't produce as many things as I'd hoped to for this campaign, but these three pairs of mittens = three pairs of warm hands, so that's something. I did finish the striped ones, but they needed a bath. I am hoping I'll be able to send them tomorrow, but I wanted to be sure the rest would get there on time.

For the blue pair with a cable, I used Momogus's cabled mitten pattern, with a few adjustments; that pair used a Green Mountain Spinnery yarn that I love, and that has been discontinued. The other two pairs follow my basic mitten pattern. The grayish-green are made with Elann's Peruvian Highland Chunky, also, I am told, about to be discontinued. The brick-red pair are made from Peace Fleece. I think these hefty worsted weights are probably my favorite yarn category. At least today.

What is everybody doing? It seems that with 4 days to go until the deadline there should be a fair number of boxes on the way!

I have been gone so nothing new for this campaign but I am hoping that acceptance of socks and mittens will continue as I have plenty of stash and like the smaller projects. I have some family knitting to finish now but am eager to continue so long as we have the ability to get these to kids who need them.
