Knitting Fever is a consortium of independent shops, and most of their affiliated shops are collecting handmade and store-bought items for the victims of Hurricane Sandy. You can read about it on their blog, Yarnologue:
http://knittingfever.com/blog/?p=1563

They suggest that you use their shop finder to find your LYS and call to see if they are participating. I did, and two of the local shops are, so I'm planning on donating. As I clear my late mum's stuff out of our garage, I'm finding lots of things she crocheted for charity or for her church's white elephant sale that are going off to the Sandy victims.

Pat, take a look at this.

This came today. I know there has been some discussion on KP about helping others with our knitting efforts. This might be a good way to help, especially as the weather is getting so much colder in the North.

"NEW YORK NEEDS YOUR HELP!
Vogue Knitting is also working with World Vision to collect knits to help provide warmth to those who have been affect4ed by the storm. Please send hats and scarves to World Vision (855 East 138th Street New York, New York 10454) and they will distribute warmth to those who have been affected by the devastation of Hurricane Sandy.

We all need to think about recovering in the months ahead. "

I will send some soon.
