Here's the Summer 2006 Challenge!

MITTENS!

It gets cold on the Northern Plains and little kids (and big ones, too) need
warm hands! Warm hands for walking to school, warm hands for doing chores,
warm hands for playing outside.

So, this challenge really is about warm hands.

This is a GRAND OPPORTUNITY to use up odd bits of yarn and fleece and try
out new patterns.

Who can play? All members of Native American Support, whether they knit,
crochet, or sew.

Separate category for those who buy.

What shall we send? Mittens and gloves! 1 (not 1 *pair*, One, single.) per
week, made or bought. Sizes for toddlers through large teens. Plain or
fancy. Stripes, checks, flowered with little animal faces embroidered on.
The only restriction is that they must be WARM!

When will we do this? Now through September. Our goal will be 6 pairs per
participant. There are 16 weeks till the deadline, so if you participate,
you'll have 1 week to gather your materials and start, then a week off after
each 2 pairs to plan the next 2). The last week of September can be used to
weave in ends, block (if they need it), find a box, etc.

Mailing for the Mitten Blitz will be THE FIRST WEEK IN OCTOBER.

Where do we send them? To The Main! Address is on our Yahoo homepage.

Pithy rules:

1) Between now and the first week in October, buy, or make 6 pairs of gloves
or mittens suitable for kids 0-18 years.

2) Mail them to the Main during the first week of October.

3) Post your mailing.

Prize drawing. Two members will win (by random draw) a prize package. To be
included in the prize draw, a member will mail 6 (or more) pairs of gloves
or mittens that s/he made (one prize) or bought (1 prize) to the Main and
post by October 8 that they were mailed. Two prizes will be awarded.
Decision of me is final and not open to scrutiny ;-)
