Oh dear. We have not been very good about posting. And we have not been very good at following our schedule for the year, with each month holding a different "assignment" for the Maine Mitten Project. I did send off quite a bit to afghans for Afghans, though, and that's important too. We get one, maybe two, chances per year to get warm things to Afghanistan in time for that year's winter, so it has to be done then; I can get stuff to Maine in two days any time I choose to swing by the post office. (I love my post office.)
But here we are, September 1. And even though we had Philadelphia's finest (ugh) summer weather today -- no, that's not true; it was a mere 90 degrees (Fahrenheit) and only around 80% humidity, so it could have been far worse -- that means cold weather is coming to the North very soon! I am going to dismiss the rest of our carefully designed schedule and just try to knit a bunch more mittens, hats, and socks. I will send what I've finished on October 1, so they are there when they are needed, and then send whatever else I've managed to finish on November 1 and December 1 (or a week after if there's something that is SOOOOOOO close that it can be finished in a hurry).
And if Pat and I can manage to get in the same place at the same time, we will mail together -- otherwise, we will do a synchronized sendoff.
