Knitting for Charity

January 13, 2015

Whether we make New Year's Resolutions or not, the start of a new year is a great time to take stock of your life and possessions and make a few positive... goals for the coming months (I'm trying to make this sound positive!). One of my goals is to put my yarn stash to good use, either by knitting it up, or clearing it out - thereby making room for new yarn! With that in mind, I have compiled a (not very long) list of charitable organizations who would be wonderful recipients of your knit and crocheted items. I have also listed a few local groups who are happy to take your yarn and put it to good use for you. Please feel free to leave comments about your own favourite groups - just make sure to leave contact information so that interested people can get in touch with them!

Only one week left - are you ready?!
