~*Knitting And Crocheting Hope*~
My friend Samantha has been fighting a rare form of cancer for 4 years. She is now twenty-five years old and she is very cold due to the weight loss and chemo.
I thought it would be nice to make this a warm Christmas for her by knitting or crocheting her gloves, mittens and fingerless mitts.
I would like to ask for help with making this happen as I would like to think that every stitch would restore her hope.
I knit her the fingerless mitts in the photo above from a free pattern called Toast so that she could wear them indoors as her hands are always cold.
I knit them with 10 ply Aran yarn on #6 needles.
I cast on 34 St's as I tend to be a tight knitter.
And I know this isn't much but I want to give back for every one's kindness so for every pair of gloves you send to me by December 20Th 2009 you will get 5 entries into a drawing for a Cable Needle Necklace made by Leslie Wind as a thank you for helping give hope to Samantha for Christmas.
Her measurements are:
arm 11" around
wrist 6.5" around
hand 7" around knuckles
thumb 3" around
When ready to send the gloves out just email me at email@example.com for my mailing address.
I will send out all the gloves 2 day priority mail to Samantha in time for The Holidays and will post the names and pictures of the gloves as they come in.
With Sincerest Thanks Darcy
