How about starting to knit again, Saz, my friend in blogland? Maybe a scarf for people in Mongolia where winter is very intense. Lots of people did it-- coast to coast, Canada, Australia. The Dulaan Project collected 12,085 handknits-- at least one item of clothing or a blanket went to more than 12,000 men, women, and children. A year's worth of knitting by many little red hens and a few roosters. Time to begin the 2007 accumulation.
More at Mossy Cottage Knits, Ryan's blog from Seattle. There's even a tiny photo of little Mongolian children as they wear the latest shipment. I could swear the brown and orange hat is the one Ron knit. Of course, it could be someone else's very original color combo.

Emaile from my friend, Steve Hill, "... recently found good news about New Orleans: http://www.justiceclothing.com/thereis/justice/kgordon where
I ordered some shirts made in a unionized factory
that reopened there! (It's difficult to find ethical
clothing that appears conventional enough for the
office, so this site is handy.)"
