Afghans for Afghans deadline - Nov. 3

The AfghansforAfghans project has announced its formal due date for the sweater collection: Nov. 3rd. KnitWits is sending 7 sweaters, 2 vests, 13 hats, 2 pairs of socks, and 5 pairs of mittens. This week. Every week that I stop by Hillcreek Yarn Shoppe there seems to be more to add. Hooray! I still have to finish off the vest that I've made. Edge around the arm holes. Put in a zipper. (I decided that the vest should have buttons AND a zipper.) This week. I'll get it done! And I've been working on a top down sweater that refuses to end. The Nov. 3 deadline will give me some time.

In the meantime, I've discovered Dulaan 2007. They're trying to get 2007 participants to make and send five items to warm the homeless of Mongolia.

To participate, sign up between between Monday, October 2, 2006, and Tuesday, October 31, 2006.

This makes a nice continual knitting cycle: afghans for Afghans (due Nov. 3), Dulaan (due July 2007), and local (all the time).

Thanks for letting me know about the deadline! Now, I don't have to pay for speedy shipping.And maybe I can finish something else, too.
