Update- Nov 3 - I have heard from other knitters and crocheters that for handmade items there seems to be a need for sweaters, all sizes, and blankets. One thing I have thought of is that this need will likely be around a while- all winter, so if you are slow, not to worry as  items will be needed for months.
