Who? The Handmade Afghans to Thank Our Armed Forces Project aka Rectangle 6×9.org
What? A totally volunteer organization dedicated to providing comfort to America’s military men and women wounded in service to our country.
How? Volunteers of all ages in over 39 states & 2 other countries (and counting) knit and crochet 6″ x 9″ rectangles from acrylic, 4 ply worsted weight yarn. The completed rectangles are collected by a few volunteers, sorted by color, & stitched together. Chaplains and the Red Cross deliver the afghans to wounded servicemen & women in the hospital….mostly in the DC area.
Why? Because we them!!!!
Check out this website and read more … I bet your fingers will be itching before you finish! Go ahead–stitch up a rectangle or two or twenty.
I sent an email to them for more information and will post it, if given their OK.
Now….go dig through that stash of yours…..I KNOW you have one!
