I have posted a KAL in the charity forum but Not everyone goes there so I 'm putting out a plea in here :hug: I need 850 mini Christmas socks to send to our troops over seas.Please go check it out and help me and Becky meet the goal of 850.If everyone on here just knit or crocheted ONE sock we would have met our goal:cheering: and then some.Can't have to many:teehee: There is a EASY PATTERN to use.These guys need our help,some get NO x-mas gifts at all.
So head on over to the Charity site and PLEASE help us out.
Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!
And thanks to you who have already volunteered :cheering:

I want to try. I can't get to that pattern from this computer and i was going to the store after work and didn't want to drive all the way home then drive all the way back by my work. What do i need so i can get started right away? (weight of yarn and aprox. size of needles)

All you need is some extra worsted weight yarn, any yarn, any color, and size 3 needles. You can knit in the round like some people or knit flat and seam up. hope that helps!
