Of course you can make things and give them as gifts, make things for yourself or for your home but there comes a time when our family and friends are over saturated with our beautiful creations and our homes won't hold another single thing and of course if you are like me you haven't become a granny yet :( I live in hope.....
That's the situation I found myself in a just a few short years ago and so I began to think about charity knitting but hadn't a clue where to start. That's where Loving Hands came in, I found this group while I was browsing on-line and have never looked back since. Do check out this lovely group they knit/crochet/sew for all kinds of charities from blankets for orphan elephants
to hen coats
for battery hens. You may decide that you would like to join too, many good friendships have been formed on there and there is a lively forum where you can share your creative ups and downs and just about anything you want to really. You will also have access to free patterns and a list of charities to send your things to.
Julie from mack and mable is a member of LH and has written this about the charity she is supporting.
I know many of you make things for charity why don't you tell us about the charity you support and I will link it back to here, it may inspire someone else to support them too.
