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!
Welcome Aboard!!!
If you haven't already drop me a note at rectangle6x9@comcast.net and I'll send you more detailed information about making 6"x9" rectangles.
Thank you for your interest in helping those wounded in service to our country, Deborah

I emailed you. I didn't know this was going on and had messaged Shandeh about Operation HOmefront.

I just got back from Wal-Mart where I got some Bernat Softee Chunky in red and white and navy (they didn't have slightly brighter blue) and black for the other charity squares. I am ready to knit!

Never used it so can't help there. The yarns I recommend for making 6"x9" rectangles are the nice smooth worsted weight yarns... like Red Heart Super Saver, Lion Brand Vanna's Choice, Bernat Berella "4" or Bernat Super Value. They are easy to use and make nice rectangles.

Good luck on your knitting!!!

I have some Vanna's Choice but it's mustard. I like it, but will soldiers? I'll get more but I can't today and I want to make rectangles.

Mustard color is perfect!!!!! Think "male" as you decide on colors - remember no pink, peach or pastels (any colors). Brights are fine.
