Helmet Liners

My buddy and co-worker, Dan, is on his second tour in Iraq. I came across this pattern as a link in the Lionbrand weekly newsletter in November/December and had to try it. Alas, it called for pure wool. All I had was pink. I put the wool on my Christmas List, but it was a little too hard for Santa to find, and I had to wait till January 2008 to buy it at AC Moore.

Needless to say, I was able to finish not one, but two of these helmet liners:

...Talking Heads...

Why wool? Because it keeps our Troops warmer than acrylic, won't melt in an emergency, and is warm even when wet.

I shipped them off at the Post Office today, and I can't wait to find out how they work in action!
