I know there is not much time but the need is great. Afghans for Afghans needs 900 wool vests and sweaters by November 3.

The second link gives the details along with a lot of links to patterns available online.
A vest can be knitted in a week (or less, if you have lots of time LOL) Stash yarn is perfect - I am using some turquoise wool I bought online thinking it was "sky blue" (that's what it was labeled -- live and learn -- good thing it was cheap!) If you go to my online photos, you can see the pics of what I've knitted along with links to the patterns. http://www.flickr.com/photos/83951338@N00/

I forgot about the Canadian deadline being sooner that the US deadline of November 3rd. I would think they'd accept a store made wool vest -- they only accept wool or mostly wool blends due to the extreme cold climate.
