Knitting for WWII Vets: Knit your Bit
#1

Hu there,

If you know anyone who is a knitter, the WWII Museum is collecting knit scarves for our vets. Here is an article that tells where to send them and also is a nice story about how one woman got closer to the experience of the war through her knitting a scarf.

There are lots of charity knit programs for veterans and active service folks. If you'd like to find one, send me an email and I'll send you some links.

Hi there happy folks

The WWII museum in New Orleans has some patterns and history of knitting during the war. They have crochet patterns too!!!

They've collected over a thousand scarves in the last two years.
