Who are you?
My name is Robyn; I am a student at Green Mountain College (class of '12), and I started this project as a Delicate Balance project, but I have been an avid knitter since 2008, and it's good to be able to use something I know and am passionate about to help others.

What kind of yarn do you want?
Acrylic and acrylic blends are ideal, as some find wool to be warm but scratchy, and others are allergic.  Please, no novelty yarns (such as eyelash yarn or art yarns).  Other than that, the sky's the limit! 

Where is my money going?
As of 2/4/11, Knitting Write is collecting monetary donations, as well as donations of yarn and of knitted objects.  This will not always be the case. Any money raised as a result of this will go toward the procurement of yarn, needles, and miscellaneous expenses (such as color printing for fliers).  Monetary donations will close after the final workshop (3/26/11).

Where is my yarn going?
If you send in yarn, first of all thank you.  Your yarn will help supply those whose budgets do not allow for knitting materials to participate in the drive.

Where is my donation going?
At present (2/7/11), agreed partners include the Rutland County Women's Shelter and Rutland Regional Medical Center.  Additional proposed locations include Poultney High School and Poultney Elementary School.

What sort of items should I make?
RRMC is interested in accepting chemo hats for cancer patients or baby hats for newborns.
RCWS welcomes any items—hats, scarves, and mittens will be saved up year-round for Christmas, and any children's and baby items such as hats or blankets are always accepted.
