Squares For Comfort Charity KAL/CAL with Knitting Brooklyn!!

In an effort to help those devastated by Hurricane Sandy, JanElinRN and terry427 are collecting afghan squares to seam into much needed blankets. They have set up a group on Ravelry- Squares For Comfort which I urge you to join and support! I would like to encourage a sense of community here in the KB group, so I will be hosting an afghan square KAL/CAL until 12/31 to help out these wonderful ladies!!
Find the Ravelry thread here!

How You Can Help!
  • Knit or crochet 12” x 12” afghan squares with a garter stitch border
  • Please use machine washable, worsted weight yarn
  • Any color, pattern, or design is welcome
  • Any additional cards or notes with well wishes that you would like to pass on can be included as well.
  • You may include your name and city/state with your donation if you’d like that included
Our KAL/CAL will end 12/31, but Jan & Terry will accept squares indefinitely.

Mail your squares to:
Squares for Comfort
PO Box 909
Melville, NY 11747

Of course, there’s prizes!!
