Quiltlady, you'll love Knitting for Peace! Ever since I got it, all I want to do is knit for charity.

Favorite charity knitting
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).

I'm ready
I sent in the charity baby afghan part that I was in so I'm ready for another charity project. I'm going to get my Knit for Peace book out and see which one I'll start.

I was thinking of the Red Scarf project but it really sounds like they have too many coming in. What do you think?? Anyone else involved in that one??

I have knitted for Project Linus in the past. It is one of my favorite knitting charities.

Two more:

The Rectangle Project: http://www.rectangle6x9.org/

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.

I just purchased the "Knitting For Pece" book today. It is great. Enjoy!

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.
