K4OT Knitting for our Troops Project
Meg Gaige

This project is in its 8th year.  It was started as a way to help our troops by knitting helmet liners and sending them to soldiers both in the US and overseas.  The program has grown by leaps and bounds.  This year we added Girl Scout cookies to the boxes of wool caps for deployed soldiers, and next year we will begin also creating wool cap and scarf sets for Veterans (some are homeless) who visit the Bath VA Center for care.

If you check out the recent article on page 4 in our June newsletter, you will see a write up on the success of this years project. 

Watch for instructions on our next venture in year 9 and how you can contribute.  Donations of yarn and/or money for materials are welcome if you are not a knitter or don't have time to knit but would like to be involved. 

For those who want to get a head start on the next round of helmet liners, the instructions are:
