Hurricane Afghanalong Continues

We'll continue with our Afghanalong for hurricane survivors for a while longer. Our friend Rachel confirms our items are still needed—in her town of Ocean Springs, MS, there are still 5000 people living in tents. There are likely many others in other states nearby who are in need as well. Anything warm and handmade you'd like to send, we'll take it. Blankets, hats, wristies, scarves, baby blankets. All sizes. Please put each item in a Ziploc-type bag. If you'd like to write a note to the recipient, please include it in the Ziploc bag. We'll also take donations of postage, shipping or cash to get the stuff to the gulf region.

I'll be sending a shipment on Feb. 8th, then after that, another one will go the first or second week of March. So if you have anything you're working on that's close to bind-off, now is a good time.
Please bring your items to a Knitzilla! meeting, mail them to our mailing address (after the jump).

Thanks again for all that you do for others, whether it's for our project or another one you believe in.
We hope to see you on a Monday knit night!

More warm items sent to Mississippi

We sent a box today to Ocean Springs, Mississippi, today, containing one child's blanket and 14 scarves! Many of the scarves had matching gloves donated to be presented as a set.

Many thanks to Millie from the Bronx, Stephanie, AJ, Whitney, Brady, and all the crocheters at AJ's work for making this donation happen!

I should note that AJ has taught the crocheters at her work everything they know, and their first big project was to donate squares to hurricane survivors! That's a great way of sharing the love, AJ!

Also many thanks to Chris T. at the Hollywood (Vine) FedEx Kinko's, who gave us discounted shipping to send the items!
