I just received an email from Annie of Annie’s Mittens. I only know her mother and I have never met Annie but as I mentioned before, my knitting guild makes mittens for Annie’s kindergarten class in New York every year because these little kids don’t have much and it’s our way of helping out. Here’s what Annie had to say,
Wow!! I cannot believe that I have had a mitten pattern named after me!! What an honor! … I was really pleased this year with the children’s interest and love of the mittens that they received.
I also just found out that this is Annie’s last year teaching in New York. She’s moving back to Canada this summer. Our guild will have to put our efforts into another meaningful charity – never a problem with a knitting guild, is it?
