I haven't made anything for Afghans for Afghans in quite some time. For this Youth Campaign, the timing was perfect--I had just finished a Clapotis for which I'd bought 8 skeins of Noro Silk Garden. I had a 1.5 skeins left and just happened to get the email about the campaign right before I finished the shawl.
So, these mittens became my next project, and I finished them in 3 nights. The Noro will be nice and warm and they fit pretty well on my 14-year-old son. The colors are vibrant and interesting. I will now continue to knit for Afghans for Afghans--on this, the coldest night of the year so far on the East Coast, it feels good to be contributing something warm for a child who has so little.
