This campaign has ended.
If you knit or crochet, you might want to check out Land's End Warm Up America Campaign. Through mid-December, they will be collecting knitted and crocheted "squares" (actually 7 x 9 rectangles) that will be put together by volunteers to make blankets for those in need.
Talking Crochet's website has the full information and I'll be talking more about it on Monday. However --- the reason for a Thursday post on this is that Land's End is giving away cones of their new "Feel Good" yarn to those who can commit to making 51 squares by mid-December and you need to request the cone(s) by tomorrow!
Here's the information I have:
