Afghans for Afghans
This weekend, I made a baby hat and socks to donate to Afghans for Afghans (www.afghansforafghans.org). This organization is based in San Francisco and sends wool hand knitted items to Afghanistan, mostly for children. I found the two patterns via links on their site. The hat pattern is on a site called Fiona's Friends (http://www.needlebeetle.com/fionasfriends/free/lphat.html). It calls for Lambs Pride worsted weight yarn, but I used some Jo Sharp wool from my stash. The sock pattern is from http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/free_patterns/sock-pattern,php. It calls for North Country Cotton, but I used the same wool yarn as the cap.
