Great Big Hug from a Thankful Citizen
I was getting caught up on a few of my normal blogs and I noticed a post on The Daily Knitter about a charity project she came up with.

Her post about it is here (go ahead, I'll wait )

Anyway, I just sent her an email yesterday asking for more details. I have two manly scarves already knit up and just waiting to be sent to a good home. It sounds like a good cause to me!

I'll post an update as soon as I get any more details.

Basically, they need scarves that don't look patriotic (no red, white & blue, stars & stripes, etc.) so they can blend in better with the local population when off-post. She needs them by the end of August. I'll go back into my email to get you the address.

Congratulations Judy on the work you do and the project you've undertaken. It's wonderful folks here, already many involved in charity projects, are always so willing to consider more. Bless you and your project and the service personnel receiving the items.

Judy! I'm actually MotherHenKnits! I'm so glad that you got the scarves!

My yahoo email address is Suziehomemaker AT yahoo DOT com and that's my name here but out in blog land and on Ravelry I'm MotherHenKnits. Sorry for the confusion.

I really hope the guys like the scarves I made. I knit them up just for fun and I was saving them for a time when I had a special recipient. I'm so happy that I found your blog post! How many scarves do you have so far?

Someone suggested that I post how many scarves have been collected so far. That number is 160+ !! We are still collecting and will be until early September. Thank you to all who have contributed. Judy
