The NY Granny Peace Brigade organized a Knit In in response to the 5th anniversary of the war. Grannies were knitting stump socks, booties, sweaters and other items for wounded veterans and their families and for Iraqi Children. "Every stitch will be a symbol of our determination to end this war, restoring our nation's priorities to constructive action, responsibility and caring for all." (Source: Granny Peace Bridgade Flyer.) These pictures document some of the grannies and other protestors who joined them at their Knit-In. There were a number of Vietnam Vets as well as members of the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom. More info on the Grannies can be found at  http://nycmetro.raginggrannies.org.
