Last Minute Knitting for MN flood survivors!

Hi y’all! The listmom for one of my other groups is collecting scarves, gloves and hats for families affected by the flooding in MN a few weeks ago. She wants to distribute them by Halloween. If you’re interested in helping out, you can get mailing info, etc. on her website.

Thank you!!! :muah:

This is a [U]GREAT[/U] last minute project! :thumbsup:
