Thank you so much for this info! I am new to this site (this is my very first post!) There is no one more deserving than our military heroes! Though I do not have a family member in the service, I am active in my local VFW and have been doing a bit of volunteering for our local Blue Star Mother's chapter. Though I am not a very experienced knitter (working on it!) I have just created a pattern to make a BSM square - haven't started on it yet (need to finish a blanket for an upcoming baby shower first
) but am excited to try it out! I will DEFINITELY do up some squares for this worthy cause - GREAT take along knitting!
