I think this is a GREAT idea. Knitting during the war was a big part of the Homefront's effort to encourage our men and women "over there". In fact, String Bean and I just read about this in her Meet Molly book she got with her American Girl doll. So this is a great tie-in with our knitting unit and my encouragement of knitting for charitable causes.
Anyone want to join us? Scarves (and there is a simple pattern at their site if you want or you can make one of your own) need to be received by March 15, 2007. So get those needles clickin'!
