Post your favorite charity knitting project!

The Red Scarf Project:

The Red Scarf Project has people knit a scarf for a child who has aged out of the foster care system and is now in college. Their 2008 guidelines haven't been announced yet.

Definitely the Mother Bear Project. The Red Scarf Project is cool too. I did an Irish Hiking scarf for that one.

I share the wealth , but here's a few I've been most active in. I have a bunch of stuff for Children in Common, but it hasn't been mailed yet. I mailed 5 sweaters to Knit for Kids last year.

Knit for Kids
Children in Common

I've finished a bunch of stuff for the Dulaan Project. The last batch is drying now. And then I've got to sort, bag & tag so it can get mailed.

I went to the children in common link and I didn't see much about knitted items... they said they needed clothing but I don't see any specs for knitted items and no pattern links...

just wondered.. I did see the pics of the knitted socks...

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.

good book
I just ordered the "Knitting for Peace" book from Amazon. 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.
