"Great news on the increase of subs. It occurs to me that if the running costs are $31000 per year that is about $2500 per month. If we only had 250 members giving $10 per month that would cover it. So PLEASE if you haven't signed up for a…"

Hi Mary, just saw your comment on Joan hand-warmers.  I agree they certainly are fabulous.  I see you are looking for a crochet pattern.  There is one in the KAS Pattern book.  It is very easy, if I may say so myself :-)   The only thing is to make sure the ribbing goes around the hand so the HW stretches as the child grows.  Looking forward to a photo of your crochet HWs.
