Anyone wishing to make the troops' helmet liners, as seen in the picture below, may do so and send them to me. Email me at Quiltlady14@aol.com and I shall tell you where to send them. Put "liners" in the subject. A retired Army General will take the liners to Ft. Stewart, GA where the troops are deploying to Iraq and Afghanistan. It is bitter cold over there now and the liners are needed! To get a copy of the pattern, go to http://www.atlantaknittingguild.org/ and click on Community Service. The pattern is there. We have made a small change in the pattern to have the beginning segment 7" instead of 4" to fit down inside the shirt. Be sure to use 100% wool yarn as acrylic yarn is too flamable!
