This past Saturday, Knit Your Bit participated in our local Standown with the Veterans Administration for our third year. It is so meaningful to tell a veteran “Knitters from around the country hand-knitted scarves and sent them to us at The National WWII Museum with the expectation that we would give them to a veteran.” And then to look them in the eye as they choose a handsome scarf and say “Thank you for your service” is humbling. Here are some pictures of scarf distribution in action:
Knit Your Bit keeps the mailroom busy with packages from knitters and crocheters all over.
Volunteers open, sort, tag and get the scarves ready to go to veterans throughout the country.

We attach this note to each scarf that goes to a veteran.
The National WWII Museum tells the story of the American Experience in the war that changed the world - why it was fought, how it was won, and what it means today - so that all generations will understand the price of freedom and be inspired by what they learn.
