Today one of our new knitters April, an alum of Virginia Tech, came in and told me about an opportunity we as knitters and crocheters have to help the VT tragedy victim's families. Mosaic Yarn Shop which is located in Blacksburg, VA is collecting 8"x8" squares to piece together into blankets. They are requesting soft yarn in Maroon, Burnt Orange, White or Black. (Machine wash is not necessary as the care instructions for the blankets will be hand wash)
You can view the Mosaic Yarn Shops request here.
If you would like to participate and donate square(s) Patricia's Yarns will have a basket to collect them. If you'd like to be included in the shipment please have your squares to the shop by Sunday May 20th. That gives us over 2 weeks... lets see how many squares we can do!!
