Link to Love: Knitting for Charity

Now that the holidays are over, it's that funny time of year where it's easy to lose knitting motivation.

First of all, it feels great to take a break from knitting after the holiday rush, and second, there's a lack of people to knit for now that you've already given presents to all your friends and family.

Charity knitting is a great solution.

One option that sounds fantastic is Halos of Hope, an organization that donates hand-knitted hats to cancer patients nationwide.

They have donation centers in various locations across the country, or you can mail your finished hats to their main address in Arizona.

I discovered Halos of Hope on She Makes Hats, an inspirational knitting blog that features a whole list of charity knitting options.

Do you already knit for charity?  Which organization(s) do you donate your knits to?


  1. I love crafting for charity! I donate to Arkansas Baptist Children's homes... specifically the Promise House... I make baby items for them. I donate to Knots of Love for veterans.

  2. my friend recently made a beautiful quilt for charity, I would definitely like to do a project for charity this year :)

  3. Such a worthy cause! I've just started to knit mini hats for premature babies; in the UK you can send them to any neonatal units to be used when needed.
