I'm sure most of you are now all aware of the school shooting at Northern Illinois University in Dekalb Illinois. My husband is an alumni and my brother-in-law currently attends there. We thank the Lord he is ok and was not harmed. After the Virginia tech shootings many people got together and made blankets for the victims and families. I would like to do the same for the NIU students, I just need help and to see if anyone else is interested in helping. We would just be knitting squares and putting them together. The colors are black, red, and white. The mascot is a husky. After they are finished they will be sent to the school and given out. Please email me or PM me. I can not do this on my own and would like to start these as soon as possible. You can send the completed squares to the address below.Thanks
Please make them with soft yarn...something washable like Encore and make them 8x8 squares.
The deadline for the squares is April 1. The semester ends in May and we would like to get the blankets put together and sent out before then.
