Knit Your Bit Scarves for Vets

The National WWII Museum is collecting knit or crochet scarves for veterans. During World War 2 knitting was a way for Americans on the home front to help the war effort. Socks, vests and other warm clothing were knit to send to our service men over seas. The museum has been collecting scarves and distributing them to veterans in honor of this effort. They are taking gender-nuetral scarves and squares to be joined into blankets.
