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.
