Knit Unto Others

I've joined a new Knit along. This one is a short term (ended November 30) KAL designed to motivate us to knit for charity. It is called Knit Unto Others.

Our church has an annual Sock and Mitten tree -- bare tree decorated with mittens and socks which are then donated to our local food and clothing pantry. I'm knitting mittens for the tree.

The pattern I've started with is from Fiber Trends. The pattern sheet is Mitten Mania, and I'm doing the Pineapple mittens. Check out the photo of the little girl on the pattern sheet. Notice anything strange? She has three hands. Very odd. Even the lady at the Knitting store commented on it.

I'm using Encore Plymouth yarn in a dark green and yellow. It is 25% wool, so the mittens will have some warm wool content and still be machine washable.
