All tangled up

This is mostly a post for the local contingent:


I’m drowning in yarn. Through a mix of good fortune and a big mouth, I’ve found myself the beneficiary of a lot of yarn. Mostly oddballs, some still in the wrapper, some I’ve had to use to swatch.

Got any ideas about where to donate? The Nake-id Bungalow is bursting!

If you're willing to ship it, send it to Interim House: "Interim House Inc. is a 6 month drug and alcohol residential and outpatient program for women located in Philadelphia. In 2004, Interim House began a knitting program that has been very sucessful. Because of the community's response in donating yarn and needles we thought that having a blog would be a way to showcase our projects and express our thanks. Yarn donations are always welcome, appreciated, and put to good use."

THis place was featured on Cast-On in February. They have a blog to show the work they're doing with donations:">

Contact Kathy Duff if you want to make that donation.

Or, you can donate to my office. I work at The Gathering Place, a local (Capital Hill) daytime drop in center for women and their kids living with homelessness and poverty.  We have a weekly knitting group for our women- and never enough yarn to meet demands!  Check us out at">

Girl Scouts, chemotherapy waiting rooms (ours has a basket of yarn and needles with instructions for afghan squares), local daycare/school (for crafts--probably not knitting), knitting guild, hospital auxillary (women often knit for newborns).

I gave away big bags to a local guide leader and knitting guild and it felt great to get the stuff out of my house!
