Hi! Yes, please send the info on the scarves needed for soldiers. Last year I knitted a bunch of scarves for friends, family and the community elderly. I used one ball of homespun, working from the center pull and the outside thread so I could use a double strand. I cast on 12 stitches and knit each row to the end of the hank of yarn. They were very warm, very nice and squishy in the garter stitch (each row knit) and fast to work up. I don't know if this'd be suitable, but thought you'd like to know about it.
PS - I used size 19 needles
