Hey, do you guys remember this one place, Afghanistan? I think we, like, bombed it or something.
Anyway, I need all y'all knitting types to cast on a hat or mittens or a blanket or something you can whip out before June 25 and send it to Afghans for Afghans. I know you knitting types -- you so totally have a stash of unused yarn sitting around. Just haul it out, use it up by making stripes or something...whatever. This rad organization's donations are down of late, and that is no good. So just get something (the guidelines are here) together and pop it in the mail. It will make you feel better, I promise.
This is what I have so far: 2 pairs of adult wool mittens; 1 adult wool hat; 1 child's cotton hat; and most of a poofy seed stitch baby blanket out of a wool blend. None of it is hard stuff -- it's what I do instead of projects that require a ton of concentration while watching teevee.
P.S. -- If you don't have a pattern for a simple roll brim hat, I will email you one, just make the request in the comments below. It seriously will take less than 3 hours of your life.
