It's a knit-along; it's a crochet-along!

Finally finished nine little baby hats in Wool of the Andes. Not the softest so I soaked them in softener and they came out nice and soft. Got them off in the mail this morning and they say they should get there by Thursday.
Oh I can't believe I figured out how to send this!
Wool hats, mittens, and socks (knit only), for 7 years to adult, according to these guidelines. Due date: September 8.
Our wool gifts will be transported and distributed by NGO Trust in Education.

afghans for Afghans is a people-to-people project that knits and crochets wool blankets and garments as a practical gesture of friendship and respect for the people of Afghanistan. In partnership with the San Francisco office of the American Friends Service Committee, our project started in late 2001 in response to the war that unfolded after 9/11. This follows a long-time tradition of knitting for others at times of war and crisis. Afghan families still need to know that we care. Join us here for camaraderie, inspiration, and mutual support with projects.
