Re: KAL Oct 7-13 *Knit the funk away!*

I actually donated 2 trash bags full of non-wool yarns I'd accrued over the years to a home for teens with mental problems, they love learning crafts I guess. I mentioned to a lady that volunteered there that I had mountains of yarn I didn't know what the heck to do with and she was like jumping up and down excited cause the kids would love it. I threw in tons of single point knitting needles etc. too, cause I can't remember the last time I used those...
