Ravelry Group "Virtual Peace Pod"

This is a Ravelry group especially created as a Knitting4Peace Peace Pod. Anyone can join this 24-hour group. There are no set meetings; however, we often schedule knit-alongs/crochet-alongs to create items specifically for donations through Knitting4Peace.

To join, you must become a member of Ravelry.com (it's free!). Once you have your membership, you can search for "Knitting4Peace" (or click the link below) and then click "Join this group."

https://www.ravelry.com/groups/knitting4peace

** Mail completed items to K4P, 2600 Leyden Street, Denver CO 80207. Alternatively, deliver to groups in your community and let us know the details so we can include them in our totals: date, which items, how many of each, and to whom. Photos are always appreciated, too.**
