Dishcloth love for Vets

Christmas Cloth

Here's a cool pattern I tried today and really like. Free pattern can be found here.

I've pledged to knit 10 dishcloths for the Knitters for Obama charity drive, this is number 2! The dishcloths are going to be distributed to shelters that house veterans. The National Coalition for Homeless Veterans says that "conservatively, one out of every three homeless men who is sleeping in a doorway, alley or box in our cities and rural communities has put on a uniform and served this country".

If you'd like to knit your bit for a needy vet, visit this link. We also will be collecting hats, scarves, fingerless gloves, and lap blankets if dishcloths aren't your bag.
