In my morning surfing I came upon Restash Network. This is a fantastic idea to get those affected by Katrina (and I assume Rita)knitting and crocheting again. They are accepting books, magazines, needles, hooks and YARN. There is a full list of items needed and instructions of where to send on their site.
In the various blogs I read I have noticed that a lot of us seem to be organizing and destashing. Personally, I have some perfectly great yarns that have been in stash for years (plus a few recent additions)and every time I look at them I wonder: “What the heck am I ever going to make with that?” I am not saying they are ugly, bad or scratchy- just a bit too familiar. And what is that saying, familiarity breeds contempt? I am going to go upstairs and pull out these yarns and ship them off today. Because, even though I don’t know what to do with them, I am certain that there are people who need some sanity, something to do with their hands and they will know precisely what to do with these yarns.
Will you join me in doing this with your stash? Please leave me a comment and let me know that you are!
