Help Our troops!
Our troops are asking for help from all knitters and crocheters even if you only make one hat. Today, Soldiers stationed in Iraq, Afghanistan and Kosovo are exposed to winds and bitter cold during the winter months. Riding in open trucks and humvees, they often encounter sub-zero wind chills. The military head gear issued to the soldiers today is made of synthetic material which is not as warm as wool. Volunteer knitters are needed to make these wool caps for our Soldiers. Come on everyone lets make a difference Knitters unite and help out our troops We would want others to help out if it was for someone close to our heart in a different country fighting for us!

We could learn a lot from crayons:some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names,
and all are different colors....
but they all exist very nicely in the same box.
