I don’t really like to buy books, especially knitting books because I can most of those same patterns online for free. But at Barnes and Nobel last night, this book caught my eye. Knitting for Peace.
So, its basically a guide to knitting charities across the US. I’ve been wanting to donate a lot of the stuff I knit, and knit items specifically to donate for a while now. But other than the major groups like Project Linus, there are really too many charity groups to choose from. This book, will at least be a good starting off point. The patterns are pretty basic, mostly the essentials: scarves, hats, blankets, socks. The charities range from Afghans for Afghans (blankets for people in Afghanistan), blankets for animal shelters, Chemo hats, and slippers and beanies for soldiers in Iraq.
