This is very exciting! I was wondering where all our odd ball threads were moved to! :rofling:

:grphug:this is great!
I'm sure you are working on this already- but is someone going to make a sticky post with common charity links? (like web links to project linus, chemo caps, etc) it would be a nice reference for folks looking for worthy causes...

and can I just say I love the spirit here at KH- everyone always trying to help each other, and helping others in need.

:heart:

I just ordered the "Knitting For Peace" book from Amazon. I can't wait to get it. I'd like to start knitting for charities also. Thanks for this thread.:cheering:

What and how does one knit for our troops when there aren't any knitting groups that I am aware of in the community? Where are the items sent and how do you go about sending the items? Thank you. puddles:hug:

Here is another great group that helps the troops. I have sent items to this group and the coordinator is a member of a Yahoo Group (All Crafts for Charity) that I also joined.
