Knit unto others

Cold weather is coming... doesn't it just make you want to knit?? Me too.

My favorite cheapskate, Mary Hunt, recently posted some knitting resources in her newsletter for people looking to recycle or donate leftover yarn, or be on the receiving end of such goodness.

National: - online community for knitters to share patterns, yarn, tips & tricks, etc. - buy or sell yarn here

Donate yarn or knitting skills to: -
national charity dedicated to helping preemie and newborn babies - volunteers knit, crochet, or quilt blankets for sick or traumatized children - a project by Guidepost magazine - links to charity organizations

Also check with your local hospitals, churches, nursing homes, and craft stores.

Here are a few of my favorite local yarn shops:

Woolworks near Mount Washington (no website? phone
410-377-2060 or visit 6117 Falls Rd)

Lovelyarns in Hampden

Spinster Yarns & Fibers in Lauraville

Clover Hill in Catonsville

Happy knitting!
