Uknitted We Stand

Uknitted we stand~This group is about sending gifts of love to our soldiers in the Middle East. Since an army travels not on its stomach, buton it feet, please help us take care of them. If we get every knitter we contact to knit one pair of military standard socks for men or women we can meet our mission. Kim Opperman serves as designated distribution center and forward boxes of socks filled with toiletry itmes and other goodies onto Keystone Soldiers, who have graciously accepted our request for shipping our boxes. If you can not knit a pair of socks we also have room for volunteers, and donors to cover the costs of shipping, yarns and needles for the knitters. Socks for Soldiers ~ Black Yarn ~ Astrids Dutch Obsessions. If you have any questions or socks completed please contact Kim Opperman, Founder of Socks for Soldiers. Have a Hear Knit Socks for Soldiers.

I thought this was cool when I found this on Astrids Dutch Obsessions. She has all the socks yarns from European Companies plus the notes regarding Military Standard Socks size.

I found several of yarn dyers that I have purchased sock yarn from this weekend. Two Waters who created the Gryffindor yarn is and she has pictures of Korea, and a lovely lace shawl she just finished knitting. Fearless Fibers who supplied the beautiful brick colored sock yarn that I made up in an eyelet pattern also has a blog: and she has a lovely eyelet pattern knee sock in greens she just finished. What is so nice is "meeting" people I have only purchased items from, and it makes our world better.
