I've written before about our role as knitters, when it comes to donating. I think it's an ingrained, psychological need of knitters to donate. If you've never knitted a pair of mittens or a hat to donate, then please do! It is SO appreciated by the recipients. There are tons of places and ways to donate...NICUs, homeless shelters, churches, animal shelters, First Nations reserves, teen mom centres, cancer care centres....whatever sort of item you like to knit--you can find a place to donate to.
The machine knitting group that I'm in is actively involved in providing items for a couple of different places. I didn't contribute anything last year, so wanted to make sure I got some items in this year!
