In the past I have done some knitting for www.specialknittingforces.org who collect a variety of knit and crochet items to be sent to orphans of war in Iraq and Afghanistan. Being a pacifist at heart, this organization appeals to me. However they seem to be stalled in delivery options now due to the health of one of their primary volunteers. In the meantime, I am looking for some similarly focused organization to which to send my items.
I find one of the joys of this kind of knitting is the option to use up those pesky left-overs. Who cares if the left sleeve is red with green and yellow stripes and the right one solid navy…the back purple and orange and the two fronts each different? Some sweater is better than none!
This might be a fun “roll call”. For what charitable organizations do you knit? Any maybe you could tell us why that one?
