Knit Items for Others

Knit One, Purl One, Give One

Are you a crafty bugger? And super kind? Well, then... you should combine those two awesome things and make cool stuff for those in need!

Knitters and crocheters are well-known for making things for other people. Why not use up some of your leftover yarn to create a warm hat, scarf or a pair of mittens for someone in need? Some cities even encourage you to tag a scarf with a note and tie it around a tree for the homeless letting them know that they can take it if they're cold. Another idea is to create tiny hats for newborns in the NICU. Hospitals often have a 'hat tree' or something similar where nurses or new parents can choose a beautiful hand-knit cap for their little one. And, if you're a knitter/crocheter, you know how quickly you can whip one of those out...so get to it!

I find recycled gift bags & put crocheted scarf & a card inside. I keep them in my car to give away as thank you to helpful strangers or cheer up someone having a rough day.
