I understand that it's sentimental and hard to part with. However, it would be more manageable if you'd just pick out some of every size to keep and donate the rest. If you don't know where to donate them, you could try contacting your church. If you're not religious, I'd suggest donating to an ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America) church. My ELCA church does tons of charity work involving knitting: baby hats, booties, sweaters, and blankets for kits to send to new moms in other countries. Prayer shawls, and mittens. I'm sure that some of the women in these knitting groups would be happy to get knitting needles.
