As a last word to all this: thank you! Thank you to everyone who read my blog and spread the word about these mittens. Thank you to everyone who left a comment or kind word. Thank you to everyone who donated to Rosie's Place. You all raised over $1,600! That's a lot of money, no matter how you slice it, and it's going to support an extremely worthwhile organization in my city. Wow!
Have a great weekend everyone; I'll catch you on Monday.
