I know there have been a few posts in the past about this, but, as winter is on the way, I wanted to make sure to post this again.

The military is in need of warm helmet liners and scarves for the fighting men and women in Iraq and Afghanistan. (Why they don't have them already is fodder for other discussions...) I live in a military town and, while my husband is no longer active military, we have so many friends who are still deployed. Any comfort from supportive knitters out there would be greatly appreciated.

This site was recently featured in the Lion Brand Yarn newsletter. There are pattern specifications (it's the military after all...) concerning colors and sizing.

Since I'm sketchy at best on circular needles, I'm going to knit the scarves. If you're one of those fabulously talented hat knitters, please try your hand at a couple of the liners. The patterns and other pertinent information is included in the website below.

Thanks so much for all your support. Please share this site with the other knitters and crocheters you know ;-)

Thanks so much!
