You are correct. Their website isn’t so great for that kind of donation. I got most of my info from the book Knitting for Peace. See if you can get the book or see it through your library if possible, too. It has patterns and info for lots of charities.
ETA: I just looked at the book and the only pattern for that specific charity is the socks although they say they will take other items like vests and sweaters. There are so many charities so find one you love and do what you can.
I just ordered the “Knitting for Peace” book from Amazon.:cheering: Can’t wait to get it. I’ve been busy knitting for my gd but I know that eventually I’ll run out of “babies” to knit for. So doing charity knitting will be a blessing for all concerned…even me.
I got the book today and was that fast!!! Its a wonderful book. Full of how the charities got started and some heart warming stores and nice patterns that are suggested to use. I can’t wait to get busy.
I also tend to share the yarn love. A few groups I haven’t heard mentioned that I donate to are: Care Wear, Warm Woolies, Christmas-At-Sea (Seamen’s Church Institute), and Knit Your Bit (through the National World War II Museum).
And one that’s a Yahoo group: Camp Square Crew. We’re knitting squares to be made into afghans for the Victory Junction Gang Camp. (http://www.victoryjunction.org/aa_home/index.html for more about the camp) I actually had a LYS owner give me a 10% discount on the yarn I bought today b/c I was using it for this!
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/CIC-knit is the group that knits for CIC. At the moment we are doing a 2 month special project and making mittens for a mitten blitz at a reservation in ND. We had done a socks and sweaters for big kids challenge and overwhelmed the folks who pack it all up so giving them a bit of time to finish. <G>
Pretty sure the next challenge will be little kids socks and sweaters/vests.
