Kevin's Story

Kevin was a smart funny kid with ideas. And one day he wanted me to make him a giant mitten so little by little over years I knitted him a giant mitten. Kevin grew up to be a fine young man helpful and considerate of others. He volunteered in helping the homeless and helping troubled teens. This he did quietly and even his family knew little if anything about it until after his death in the back seat of a car that had a head on collision with a van when he was 25 years old.

He was a lot more too. He wrote poetry, wanted to work in the music industry after finding out he didn’t have what it took to have his own band. He loved life and his friends.

Still Knitting Mittens

Hi Folks,

Kevin's sister got married this summer and I didn't realize just how much time it would be taking away from all parts of my daily life. I need to up date the contributions and mitten knitting and this will take a bit of time as I go through the emails and letters. I'd like to thank all of you for waiting patently. And I hope that the lack of questions about the mitten pattern means that it is sound.

Feel free to comment and or email me with any questions, links to other free mitten patterns (knit or crochet) you think others people would like to use, or just comments about the mittens you are making.
