In her book, Knitting for Peace, Betty Christiansen shares charities and history of charitible knitting through the centuries. There are sections about specific kinds of knitting for peace.
I especially liked the section on knitting for children and the highlight of Afghans for Afghans. There's also patterns for various items needed by people and animals the world over. I liked the sweater patterns for the children and the hats for the children.
A Maine company, Peace Fleece, was highlighted as they produce yarn that is a combination of fibers from Russia and the United States. They also shared their basic socks pattern. I made these socks a while ago out of Peace Fleece wool and unfortunately found out the result of using machines to wash and dry 100% wool. My young niece received thick boot socks/slippers that Christmas. :)
I received my copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. I always provide a valid review of the book in question. For the eversion of this book, which is what I was reviewing, I gave it 5 stars.
