March 21 is Knit For Peace Day




Excerpt from Randy's blog:

"On March 21 every stitch that I knit will be dedicated to peace. I would like to invite everyone who knits to join me on that day"
Knit for a good cause
Here's a list of groups who knit to keep strangers warm. Send info about your project to knitforpeace@yahoo.com
Afghans for Afghans
In war, hardship doesn't care whether you're a soldier or a civilian.
CompassionKnit
Community-based project providing knitted things to homeless people.
Project Linus
Provides security blankets to children going through hard times.
The Hat Box
One Girl Scout's project, providing hats to children with cancer.

I have been a knitting fool lately. I have socks on my needles right now and today I knit a prayer shawl for myself to use to help achieve a peaceful environment during labour.
I've knit a baby blanket, booties and little bonnet for the new baby plus a sweater for myself.
