Pattern: Hold On Mittens

Hold on to what is good

Hold on to what is good
even if it is a handful of earth
hold on to what you believe in
even if it is a tree that stands by itself
hold on to what you must do
even if it is a long way from here
hold on to your life
even if it is easier to let go
hold on to my hand
even when I am have gone away from you

-Pueblo Indian Prayer

Dedicated to the memory of David, a good friend who passed away too soon.

    I applaud your efforts and ingenuity. However, for those of us who can't knit their way out of a wet paper bag, I would like to purchase the mittens. I also appreciate that they are Canadian made and not from China. Canadian artisans should be supported as much as possible. Name your price !!
