I believe, truly believe, that this is a worthwhile project. No matter where you fall on the matter of the war in Iraq, you can only support your position this way. Or at the very least express your position.
I think next time Uhlissa and I order from KnitPicks, I'll be picking up three skeins of Swish Superwash in Coast Grey and a 32" US 6 circ. That way, if Sherrod Brown (the Ohio Senator I'd like to send my helmet liner to) decides to send his to a soldier (as I hope he will), they don't have to worry about any special washing or something.
Please support our troops! They need all of our prayers/good thoughts/handmade knits to help them through.
