i know nationally, the salvation army has been doing sock drives during various fall/winter seasons. socks are the #1 requested item for charity groups, homeless shelters, etc. some years they've gotten corporate help (hanes) but they love receiving handmade pairs from concerned knitters as well. that might be a nice way for friendly folks to help use up the stash and honor nancy at the same time. info for that at http://blog.salvationarmyusa.org/tag/hanes/
after going through all the work of photographing/cataloging the yarns, i wonder if people would be willing to spring for the shipping themselves, or at least meet you halfway? i'll be watching your posts for sure - it would be nice to do something civic/humanitarian with this skill!
