Camo knitting for a cause.

Bernat Camo

My fiance often remarks how taken the world is by camo (camouflage) print clothing, and how useless this color scheme is for anything but its actual intended use. I always find this amusing.

So I was interested to read a snippet over at Crazy Aunt Purl about a local group providing some support for for people who have a use for camo - our US soldiers overseas - Operation Gratitude. Quite simply, Operation Gratitude has started a major campaign to send care packages to soldiers overseas. They've already sent over 150,000 packages!

Regardless of how you feel about this war, this is a cause to get behind. Lo and behold on the wish list of items was a request for knitted hats and gloves. (See? I'm getting to the camo...)

So there you have it! My next knitting challenge: knit up some camo hats (courtesy of Bernat camo yarn!) and send them overseas for the Winter packages. Anyone interested in joining me?
