Horses for Ivy Hill

Announcing a new charity project! Waldorf Horses to be given to patrons of Ivy Hill Therapeutic Equestrian Center. Information and patterns are found on the “Ivy Hill Horses” page.


Project Amigo

We are still collecting blanket squares for Project Amigo.  Pattern Here. Total sent so far: 253


Yarn Donations for Women in Need

If you have yarn you would like to destash, please consider donating it to the knitting program at Interim House, a women's residential drug/alcohol rehab facility

in Philadelphia. A weekly knitting session is a regular part of therapy for all residents, and they rely entirely on donated yarn and supplies.


They can use knit-able yarn of any thickness or fiber content and in any quantity (but clean and untangled please).


Knitted Knockers

Joan shares this video from the BBC showing Kenyan women and men knitting knockers. The joy on the recipient’s face will brighten your day.
