  1. I'm still making baby blankets for charity; donated a couple last year along with over 2 dozen newborn hats. (I'm slow...) Currently, I am making a knit and a crochet blanket to donate through my Eastern Star chapter to area hospitals...I prefer crochet; as I am even slower knitting & I hate frogging... ^_^

  6. After having cancer...with no hair for three years, I knit hats all year long for cancer patients. I know first hand how nice it was to have a soft warm cap on my head.

  9. I crochet scarves, prayer shawls and afghan to donate as an encouragement to those going through a hard time. I find that something "homemade with love" goes a long way to making the world look better.

  11. I knit a lot for the Indian Reservations in South Dakota. I knit afghan squares each month for the Pine Ridge Reservation. Last week I sent a poncho, 3 cowls, and 6 dishcloths to the One Nation Walking Together charity group.

  13. My mother is a 25+ year survivor of breast cancer. She's still going strong at almost 90 years young. I would LOVE to win either the yarn or one of the books to donate to cancer treatment centers. Most recently I've been working on things for Project Linus and my quilt guild's charities for children.

  16. I recently made a couple of hats - one crochet and one knit that I donated to charity. I hope to do more in 2014!

  17. Thank you for this lovely giveaway. The only thing I knit is dishcloths, so winning a book would definitely push me to do more. I was given a scarf when I was diagnosed with breast cancer last spring, so it would be great for me to share that love with others.

  18. As a knitter/quilter I am involved in providing for many charities. Quilts for children in care, challenged adults, a local women's shelter and the local Alzheimer Society. As well I have sent quilts and afghans to Calgary and Lac Megantic this past year. As a knitter I knit hats, scarves and mitts for our town's Child and Family Resource Centre. It is gratifying to see my handwork warming some of our less fortunate children.

  19. I think my last charity knit was a block for a charity quilt, though it might have been a chemo hat. Can't remember for sure.

  29. My most recent charity project was helping to knit squares for banners to decorate Portland's Broadway Bridge in August. The banners have been deconstructed into 42 blankets for local shelters and hospitals. I just finished de-fuzzing three blankets, and they'll be on their way next week.

  30. I knit a few breast prostheses. My aunt likes them better than the ones she bought. So I knit a variety of sizes and gave them to a Gildas Place.

  31. My boyfriend went through treatment for cancer at OHSU's Knight Cancer Institute. I found out there were few hats for the male patients, so I have been knitting hats for about the last ten months.

  35. Hmmm... It's been a while since I did any charity knitting. I may need to look thru my stash and fix that soon. About a year ago I did some squares for afghans to be auctioned and I did a Mother Bear.

  36. My last charity project was an ensemble of hats in bright and cheery colors. This year, I hope to raise the bar with matching or coordinating hats and throws/cowls/scarves.
