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.
www.Ravelry.com - online community for knitters to share patterns, yarn, tips & tricks, etc.
www.ebay.com - buy or sell yarn here
Donate yarn or knitting skills to:
www.NewbornsInNeed.org - national charity dedicated to helping preemie and newborn babies
www.ProjectLinus.org - volunteers knit, crochet, or quilt blankets for sick or traumatized children
www.KnitForKids.org - a project by Guidepost magazine
www.KnittingForCharity.org - 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
