I just wanted to post photos of the finished coaster I made out of my gauge from the bamboo stitch day. I finished it and I really enjoyed knitting the bamboo stitch it is such an easy stitch and turns out beautifully.

I also wanted to talk to you about a great cause called Warm Up America! Foundation. I was at my local Michael's store today and I saw a box with a few knitted squares inside and was really curious about it. I read on the box that you can donate knitted squares to form an afghan along with squares that other knitters have made. I looked on the Micheal's website when I got home and found out that they are also collecting in Canada now from October 25, 2013, to February 15, 2014. The squares must be 7" by 9" and in knit or crochet. I would really love to knit up some squares to go towards this great cause. I might knit some up with this bamboo stitch and the raspberry stitches that I learned recently. I would love if you would all knit or crochet a square and bring it to your local Micheal's store to help warm up America and Canada!

Below I have posted the links to the various pages for more information. I would love to see the squares you knit up!
