Mittens for a Cause | Craft DictatorI love to knit but I only knit when I am a passenger in the car or waiting for an appointment.  When I am at home it is hard for me to sit that still. During this summer I have been knitting mittens. I am pretty much a two trick pony when it come to knitting, I only knit two things, hats and mittens.  I like to knit those two because they are small,easy, and fast. I live in southeast Texas and mittens are not part of our everyday wardrobe even in the winter.  A couple of the pairs are going to be presents but the remaining pairs are going to be donated. A previous church I attended has a mitten tree at Christmas that I could donate to but there are some other charities on the internet that collect mittens.

Mittens for Detroit is one:

Since I have been blogging I am amazed at the talent that is on the internet.  The first time I went on Pinterest I was blown away at the creativity.  The thought that if all the folks, with all this creativity, could create for a cause, how much social change for the good could occur. As a young women in the Methodist church I was amazed by the stories about the women of the church in the 1860’s organizing to bring about social change when they themselves had very little power. Just think about all the changes the lowly “bake sale” has made through history.  One of my goals for 2014 is to use a little of my creativity to make a difference for others.

  1. I adore the idea of being a “car knitter!” I tried it years ago and found I lacked the patience but if I’m stuck sitting there anyway… and I could just keep a little bag of my stuff close at hand… hmmm. And then to have a whole pile of things to hang on my church’s mitten tree in the winter… I’m loving this! :)

  2. So happy you ate using you talent for good and other people! I live in Alabama and the weather here has been very unpredictable with the rainy cold days to hot spring like afternoons, so gloves/mittens aren’t really used a lot. I would love to learn to knit and I like your work.

  4. I grew up in the suburbs of Cleveland, Ohio— COLD! I remember my mother, and later my mother-in-law, buying hats and mittens at Kresge’s to give to children that did not have any. They were inexpensive but made a huge difference. My mother-in-law had Alzheimer’s Disease, and in her later years, she would mistake fire hydrants for children and want to put hats and gloves on them :)Two amazing women that raised two adults who try our best to help others. My point is that OUR example is teaching OUR children and grandchildren now!
    Great post– I am linking to it from my Christmas Eve post too :)
