Knit afghan squares or toys for Warm Up America!
Today was my first knitting class (series of 4) to learn how to make a sweater. The teacher is wonderful and I'm going to look forward to making the sweater leap.
After I came home, I was surfing through knitty's coffeeshop and found that one of the knittyheads, Ali, has started a special blog for a group of Knitty.com readers who have joined together to knit as many afghans and toys possible by October 1 for victims of Hurricane Katrina. I literally shot off the sofa, hopped in the car and drove over to Michael's to get some Lion Brand Wool-Ease so I could get started.
