I just recently saw this post in the Knitter's Review forum by hissyknit (Chrissy B) and I thought I'd share:
It's that time of the year and the WWII museum is once again asking for knitted scarves for our veterans in VA hospitals, VFW and American Legions. Last year my knitting group sent about 25 scarves to them.
The only request they have is for scarves with no pink or yellow--most of the vets in the hospitals are men and they prefer traditional "men" colors. Any pattern is fine as well as any kind of yarn. Acrylic is fine or something that is washable.
For more information, contact the very nice contact person, Lauren. If you want to send some pink or yellow scarves for some lady vets, she can tell you if and how much to send. The website is http://www.nationalww2museum.org/education/knitting.html
Thanks in advance for helping our vets!
