I saw this on Clutterpunk and would really like to make at least one by the dead line. Gina explains it so well here
"There are a bunch of refugee craftswomen living and working in camps along the Thailand/Burmese border. They make and sell lovely stuff to earn a wage and support their families, and the great news is it's fair trade. But when December/January rolls around, they get cold, which can cause illness and other disruptions to their work, and therefore their income. Claire @ Warm Women wants to do something about it, and she wants people like you and me to help out by making a scarf to send along to our chilly Karen refugee friends."
Can you do one as well? Here is all you need to do (copied from Warm Women)
