The Maine Mitten Project has formed a "group" on Ravelry and boasts 44 members.
One of our members "kleinch"posted this photo of her contribution to the project and says "For the Maine Mitten Project, for which we are collecting at school"
I have since learned that the school is in York, Maine so we will look forward to their contributions.
Here's another from Ravelry member Wooleybear368 and made with her first hand spun. How generous of you Wooleybear!
Thank you all!
