On this episode of YarnCraft, Liz & Zontee highlight groups that are bringing joy to those in need through the good works of yarncrafters. We hope that as you think about your last-minute holiday crafting, you consider bringing holiday cheer to those less fortunate this season through knitting and crochet charities and organizations!
Organizations discussed include:
- Hats for the Homeless
- Helping Hands Foundation
- Knots of Love
- Newborns in Need
- Socks for Soldiers
- Global Knit
- You can learn about more organizations discussed by our listeners by checking out the Ravelry discussion
Zontee also discusses her holiday projects so far; click here to see them on the Lion Brand Notebook.
The YarnCraft ladies are also joined by Robyn Chachula for our Stash This: Ideas for Your Crafting Life segment. Robyn is a designer and new mom, whose new book Baby Blueprint Crochet features adorable patterns for your child. Robyn shares with us her 5 most-useful gifts for new parents.
Learn more about Robyn and her books at CrochetbyFaye.com.
Please note that YarnCraft will be on hiatus for the holidays, so join us again in January for more yarn inspiration. In the meantime, we encourage you to continue to interact here on the YarnCraft blog and on our Ravelry group, as well as to check out Lion Brand’s newsletters for more ideas. See you in 2011!
Theme music is “Boy with a Coin” by Iron and Wine, from the PodSafe Music Network.
