I am going to take Click Clack's
post and embed here because I think she stated it quite well:
I got an email today bringing my attention to the fact that The Knit Café
is serving as a drop-off point for items being collected for Afghans for Afghans
. They're looking for garments and blankets, knit or crochet, in natural animal fibres to clothe Afghan people.
- No synthetic fibres
- No representational imagery (faces or animals), no religious imagery
- Avoid white and light colours that are hard to keep clean
- No used items or scarves
- Please knit items to standard sizes, keeping warmth in mind
More information, guidelines and patterns can be found here. Thanks to Anita for helping to organize this. The Knit Café is located at 1050 Queen Street West. Deadline for items is September 25, 2007.
