How Charitable Exactly?

The hat of pain is finished. I have started on the mittens and I think I'll be able to get the hat, a pair of mittens, and a facecloth all done by the end of the month. Naturally by saying that I have just about ensured that I will have some kind of accident this afternoon which will render me unfit for knitting till October 31 at the earliest.

I now need to decide how I am going to count these projects. As you may recall I vowed to work on nothing but charity projects till I had 5 done or the month was over whichever came second. I have completed one hat, and am partway through one mitten. Here's the question: At the end of this, how many things will I have done for charity? It could be considered one project since it's all going to the same place for the same person. It could be three since there will be a hat, mittens and a facecloth. It could even be four since there are, after all, two mittens. How far can I push the oath and not get a lightening bolt?
P.S. Thanks to Mother Nature for the fall colors that are finally starting to show up.

Well it all depends on how quickly you want to get onto knitting something for you. If you are itching for a Kathy project, it's time to do some creative accounting.

My humble opinion....I was under the impression that it was individual items not sets of things....but them maybe it's good that I'm not standing too close to you. :)
