      > Lands’ End has teamed up with Warm Up America!, with Crochet Today editor Brett Bara as their spokesperson, on an exciting project to help warm up families in need this winter. The Knitting Guild Association’s member guilds have been invited to join in the fun. Lands’ End is donating 5000 pounds of their soft FeelGood yarn so that 64,000 blanket squares by a combination of groups can be knitted and crocheted. The goal is 2000 blankets by mid-December!
      > The yarn will come in cones, each of which will yield 51 squares. This is not a one-person project â€" we need groups of people who can knit or crochet at least 51 squares out of the yarn. That’s why your TKGA member guild is invited to participate.
