Hello everyone, just wanted you all to see that we are ready to ship out our very first package to the troops of the 172nd Infantry Brigade who are stationed in Afghanistan searching and disarming IEDs.

It might not be much but it is a great start.

I would like to thank everyone who contributed their time, effort and yarn to this amazing group of men who protect us from the evils of the world.

If you would like more information and would possible like to contribute for the next shipment, please feel free to visit our website at theknitlocker.org

Hoping to hear from you!!

Be well this holiday season!!

Nina

What a wonderful assortment of goodies. The scarves are just lovely and the hats and socks are going to be so appreciated and add a little color and cheer as well. Sure hope your efforts continue to grow. Whata nice way to show appreciation for our service personnel.
