yes. me. I am on this. (not to mention I am a mitten fanatic the way others are sock fanatics.)

Have you considered putting this information up on the "Standing On The Side Of Love" website? I think you would find a lot of support there.

This is a fantastic idea. And I have a lovely green yarn with no purpose...

Count me in. I have some green yarn that needs a home.

I have only ever knit fingerless gloves but love this idea. I will repost on my blog.
Thank you!

Mitten trees are a great idea! I will knit mittens (and bake cupcakes). I am also local (I work at SUNY O) so I may be able to help in other ways as well.

Maybe it's just me and my lack of understanding, but if you can explain it for old ladies, I will bring the plan to them tomorrow, or next Friday if we don't get me fully understanding by then.

can i quilt some mittens???

I'm in.

This sounds like such a nice idea. I must have some green in the stash: I'll dig for it. And I can blog about it--soon, not tonight--and let my dozen or so readers know!

Quilting mittens is great! I'm not even sure what that would look like but have at it.

And, Anna, it's pretty simple. Knit green mittens. Send them to me. They'll go on a tree, then either be auctioned off or donated to people with cold hands. Yes?

Thanks so much y'all! Let's keep it moving....

wonderful....i'll make mittens. also i''m sure my other knitting group will love to participate. i'm sure sybil of sybil's yarn shop will be interested. let's do this!

I got halfway through a mitten last night. Should have the pair done by the end of the weekend. Then will start second pair.

Can I send a check to you via your Green Toad bookstore for expenses? I'm a slooow knitter but would love to help someway. The whole Newton killings / gun laws / murders of little kids and Girl Scouts has been haunting me enough to get in the way of sleeping and I want to do SOMETHING. Thank you for getting the ball rolling.

When do you need the mittens by? I would love to join in but these would be my first mittens, also I'd need to get them to you from Australia. I know it seems kind of strange knitting mittens in an Australian summer, but it would be nice to offer something from down here.

Sue B and Tony - the short answers are yes and October. I've sent you some email....

Consider creating a facebook event. That would be easy to share. I've just posted this link on Knoxville Art and to some select friends.

Well I have never knit mittens before, but think this is a perfect reason to learn.
Count me in.

Keep your fingers crossed they turn out wearable. If they do, I will try and make more.

Thanks for your message, count me in!
