Free Yarn

Tomorrow at Stitches West there will be free yarn.  Now nona cannot speak for others, but at least she will be giving away free yarn.  Part of my UFO excavations uncovered quite a bit of really nice yarn - yarn I know I'll never use.  nona thinks this yarn is getting a bit lonely hanging out all day in plastic bins -- this yarn wants to be knit. 

Free yarn for Stitches

As with all free things, there are strings attached.  Here are nona's strings:

  1. Only one bag of yarn per person
  2. Only take the yarn if you plan to knit with it - this yarn does not want to sit in any more stashes
  3. Optional -Let nona know what you plan to knit with your chosen bag of free yarn.

How nice of you to share your stash, Ms. Nona. Wish I could go to Stitches too. ;-)

Thank you for thinking of others. I think I'll choose the sock yarn in the bottom right corner. I'm so on a kick of making socks for me as well as family and friends. Yummy colors too. My fingers are itchin to start.

I would love free yarn. I don't knit. But love to crochet. If crochet is not ok then accept my apologies for taking your time. If it is I am willing to take any color. I make granny squares, scrunchies, barrettes and 100% cotton dishcloths.

Hello there Nonna!
Well, I work with a group called HAIN,heavenly angels in need...and we assist premature babies, and still born babies families.
We are a group of women who can knit and crochet,and we make blankies, booties and mitts for the little needing babies at hospitals and foster care homes,also for the still born babies who sometimes are too small to have a regular sized preemie set of clothes. We knit all kinds of special sizes..and we work hard. We are needing lots of yarn donations for our babies.
So we would LOVE to receive some yarn..since there is many of us...a pack each we could knit for tons of lil babies..:)
Check out our website and please..give this a thought.
We're a christian group willing to help those tiny babies in need.

My daughter is int eh hospital and will be for about a year and I am teaching her to crochet and knit. We are a little strapped for extra cash right now so any colors or textures would be wonderful to bring her, she will most likely begin with a pillow for her room.
I can pay postage also

I have been crocheting blankets and giving them away to people in my church. I have run out, and buying more has been next to impossible. So this yarn would truly help me.

Thank You & God Bless You

If there is anything left I can also pay shipping as I am on the east coast and I regret have a daughter also in a PCr for 6-12 months and I am knitting scarves for the kids there and teaching them as well, I try to keep up but I am losing my shirt keeping her there.
So any colors or textures would be great I am sure the kids would find even using bits and pieces fun to see the crazy mixed up colors emerge as a design in and of itself.
