Is Charity Knitting Lame?
I thought it was until I actually started researching it a bit more. Instead of just making random things and donating them to charity shops, targeting specific causes who have specific needs means that hopefully my charity knitting won't be lame and will actually help someone out there! I have made seven 8 inch squares for Knit a Square. I'm looking through some baby FOs to give to a friend who donates to a womens' refuge. I'm planning to knit a square or 3 for Sian O'Callaghan's healing blanket. see this Rav group for more info: http://www.ravelry.com/groups/sian-ocallaghan-healing-memory-blanket
