This is a photo of a stump stock I just finished to donate to the military hospital for our veterans who are returning home as amputees. The knitting guild I belong to has chosen this as one of our charitable knitting projects. I’ve decided that between every project I knit for myself or my friends and family, I am going to knit at least one stump sock for the veterans. Here the website for the knitted stump sock, also known as a residual limb cover, pattern:
I’m sure any military hospital would be happy to receive any that you make. Just be sure to use 100 percent acrylic yarn so they can be easily laundered.
