FO: Afghans for Afghans


Over the past couple months I have been knitting away at these "mindless" projects for Afghans for Afghans. Their current campaign is requesting knitted hats, socks and mittens in strictly wool. As next semester begins at school and seeing as I just received a huge donation of wool, this organization is going to the top of our action plan list. I will be creating a KAL group on Ravelry for anyone who is interested and I want to expand the scope of Knitting for Peace at University of the Pacific to anyone who wants to help our efforts. Throughout the year I find that I spend most of my time teaching everyone how to knit or crochet. So any outside effort would be greatly appreciated as we can make a bigger impact. A larger impact to not only Afghans for Afghans, but also to the local homeless shelter which we donated a large box of items to last year. Being as I am moving in ten months, I plan to essentially open a new "chapter" at the university I will attend. Until then, please let me know if you would be willing to help us in our efforts by leaving your email in a comment below!

Also a big shout out and thank you to everyone who read my post about Petra Anderson and donated to the cause. It really means a lot to me and you will see the benefits in giving returned to you. Some would call it good karma, but I truly believe in the philosophy that you always receive more than you could ever possibly give. Thank you.
