L & B Yarn Co is now a Community Partner with The National WWII Museum Knit Your Bit program. This is a volunteer-based effort to collect and distribute hand-knit or crocheted scarves to veterans in need. Since its launch in 2006, Knit Your Bit’s reach has been vast—more than 10,000 knitters and crocheters in all 50 states have participated. Through their efforts, the Museum has distributed 50,000 scarves to approximately 1,000 veterans’ centers, hospitals, and service organizations across the country. You may use any yarn, but please keep the colors gender neutral. Here is a link to the Knit Your Bit website just click here to find patterns and more information about the project! If you would like to donate just bring your scarf by the shop during our normal business hours and we will get it to the museum for distribution.
