I just read a call for knitters to knit for the military in Afghanistan, you can find the article in the Aug-Oct 2005 issue of Cast-On magazine. I just received mine today. The item is a Balaclava - hood that goes under their kevlar helmets and covers their mouths and necks leaving an opening for the eyes.

I will be collecting hats, mittens, scarves and such for the PADS clientele in the DuPage County area of Illinois at the Heartland Knitting Retreat in December; for those of you that might be attending you are welcome to start knitting something now but it is not a requirement of attending.
