All of us who knit and crochet know what it's like to find a gorgeous yarn at a shop on sale only to find you've got the last one or to have a skein of yarn left over from a project because it never hurts to buy an extra right? (especially when you find the yardage was slightly off on the pattern) What does one do with one skein of yarn? Why not donate a one skein project to charity?
There are many books and pamphlets extolling the praises of the one skein project but to simplify things for FREE. The web is full of great project ideas for charity.
Children's charities are among the most active with which I have ever been involved. National and International charities such as Binky Patrol, Project Linus, and Knit for Kids just to name a few, there are plenty of avenues for you to share a knit or crocheted items with children in need.

For adults there are a plethora of warm patterns to share with those who need a bit of help especially in the Winter. Many charities collect items for winter warmth and blankets for times of need including the Red Cross and the Salvation Army. Prayer shawls are also wonderful gifts. Many churches collect them for those who have experienced loss.
