Va Tech Afghan Project

I just found out about this a couple of days ago from my local Stitch 'n Bitch group, even though the initial announcement went out on April 22nd. The Mosaic Yarn Shop of Blacksburg, VA is collecting knit and crochet squares to make into blankets for the victims of the VT shooting. These will be going to the injured and the families of the dead, although there's apparently some debate over whether or not to make any for Cho's parents. Personally, I say go for it. After all, they lost family too. I'm not sure how much they could have done to prevent this, or if they even recognized the risk. I will note that the people at the school who realized that something was wrong couldn't do much because you really can't help someone who doesn't want it. It's not like no one tried.

Requirements: The squares should be 8x8 in black, white and/or the VT colors of maroon and burnt orange. Squares are due by the end of May.

You can send them to:
Mosaic Yarn Shop
880 University City Blvd.
Blacksburg, Va, 24060
