Combat Knitters

Back in early September, Sarge contacted me about a soldier who was needing some knitting stuff. He said she was stuck in the sandbox without needles or yarn. Naturally, I could not let this go on, so I put out a call on my podcast, Twitter, Plurk and Ravelry and the donations came in

I mailed it all over in 6 boxes (and one person from the UK mailed another box)
