Vests for Afghanistan

This is my 300th post! I thought I'd use it to share some of what's been going on with the Afghanistan project at school....

These are just some of the vests (and socks) that have been made for the grade 7 knitting project. Each of the vests has a tag on it, saying who made it...many are made by the students, many are made by community members who, finding out about our project, wanted to participate.

Beautiful, aren't they?

Our classroom goal is 100 vests from the community and class. There are quite a few vests in the classroom waiting to go up, so the teacher/co-ordinator is going to set up another hallway banner. Pretty cool.

There are 20+ vests on this wall, and around that many in the classroom (plus what some of the kids still have on their needles).

I have another baby one on the needles, and am looking forward to getting it done to add to the new wall.

More Kool-Aid dying with them today, too!
