A Chance to Help

After yesterdays post, you may wonder if I ever feel any guilt about being such a glutton for yarn and the answer is "Yes!" As much as I love it all, I know there is such a thing as too much yarn (at least I'm guessing there is) and I don't want to reach that point (I couldn't already be there could I?)

In addition, I am generally a selfish knitter... I knit mainly for myself and my pleasure. I don't have tremendous guilt over this aspect since so much of my life is consumed with the whole homeschooling, housekeeping, sports mom thing that it's nice to have something that's mine. That and the fact that I have yet to see any of my family members wear any of the gifts that I've knitted for them over the last 2 years... heck, even my DH lost the beanie I lovingly knit for him last winter. We're talking about a man who still has every baseball cap and beanie he ever owned yet "lost" the one I made for him... but I digress.

I am very thankful for a hobby that I can enjoy and relax with but I do believe in using any talents I might have to help when I can. So I was thrilled to read Lynda's post this morning about an opportunity to knit for some folks who are less fortunate... who really need some mittens, scarves, socks, or a warm hat.
