Knitting event benefits Afghan soldiers, families

As part of the Silicon Valley Reads 2013 theme “Invisible Wounds of War,” the Los Altos Library has scheduled a “Knit/Crochet-In” 3-5 p.m. Jan. 17 in the Program Room of the main library, 13 S. San Antonio Road.

Participants will make items for active-duty soldiers, wounded veterans and Afghan families.

Organizers plan to donate the items to the nonprofit Warmth for Warriors (warmthforwarriors.com), Soldiers’ Angels (soldiersangels.org) and Afghans for Afghans (www.afghansforafghans.org).

Participants are encouraged to check the groups’ websites for guidelines and select projects. Bring your own pattern, needles and yarn.

Friends of the Library of Los Altos and Community will provide refreshments.
