Call for Yarn Donations

Do you have old straight needles that you never use anymore? Plastic needles that you've since replaced with Addi Turbos? Remember that yarn you bought when you were first learning, before you discovered the nice stuff at your LYS? Or that time that you couldn't resist all that gorgeous worsted weight red wool because it was on sale and who can say no to a sale, even though red really isn't your color? (don't pretend you don't know what I'm talking about...)

Well my good friend Elizabeth works for Girls Inc in Sante Fe and really wants to teach her girls to knit. I taught Elizabeth how to knit a year or two ago and now she wants to pass it on. But, being a non-profit, Girls Inc relys heavily on donations. 

If you have something to give, please contact me ( for the mailing address. I'll also be putting together a little gift box of Unique Sheep goodies and I'll be randomly drawing a name from the list of people who donated to decide who to send it to.

Thanks, Laura! I'm upgrading some of my needles and would love to send them along. I'll email you.

Laura, just to let you know, I shipped two boxes of new acrylic yarn to Santa Fe Girls Inc. via Fedex Ground today. Forgot to count, but estimate 40-50 skeins,(maybe more)plus a dozen or more sets of straight aluminum needles and some crochet hooks. Hope they'll enjoy learning to knit and crochet, as much as I enjoyed giving it to them and cleaning out my stash closet so I have room for more now!!!
