Project #27: Kentucky, Disaster Outreach

This project officially runs March 15 - April 15, 2012.

In response to the devastation in parts of Kentucky from the recent storms, we have decided to jump in and make squares for afghans. A Tangled Yarn (owner of the shop is Lunabudknits on Ravelry) and Sarabee’s Little Yarn Shop (Sarabee's has closed, but the owner still has an active blog) have teamed up to create and receive 7x9 squares to sew into afghans for those in need in West Liberty, Kentucky.

 I think any fiber and/or color is alright, except if using wool, please use superwash, as it would not be good for one square of the afghan to shrink and felt in the wash and make it wonky. ETA: Other items will be accepted in addition to the squares; there is great need there in many areas. One of their requests is for pillow cases. If you sew, feel free to send some that you have sewn. If you don’t sew, I believe that they will be happy to accept purchased pillow cases as well. Don’t forget to attach your Sharing Our Gifts printable tag. Happy creating!
