Knitting for Charity, One Stitch at a Time
eBook (with bonus printables)
+ all-new audiobook!
Now is the time to start charity knitting!
Let me get real with you for a second. One of the biggest reasons I’m so passionate about charity knitting is because I read the headlines. I see a world that often feels like it’s going from bad to worse.
And I want so desperately to help.
I try to give to charity when I can. I volunteer when I can. But what brings me tremendous joy is when I can take my sticks and string and put my energy and love into something soft and warm and beautiful…
… and I can send it anywhere from downtown to halfway around the world.
If you love to knit, and if you’ve taken this course, I have a feeling that you understand this feeling. And I sense that you want to pursue this immense satisfaction of touching the hearts and needs of others.
But knowing how to start — what to knit, who to knit for, where to take or send your knitting to — can be confusing and even overwhelming. That’s why I wrote Knitting for Charity, One Stitch at a Time.
And if I know something about almost every knitter, I know that you need more time. Wouldn’t it be great if you could work out a plan to dive into charity knitting while you’re in your car, using the treadmill, washing the dishes… or even while knitting? That is why I’ve created an audiobook version of Knitting for Charity, One Stitch at a Time — available now for the first time ever!
About Knitting for Charity, One Stitch at a Time
I’ll never forget how it felt when, as a relatively new knitter, I discovered that there were organizations out there that could use knitters’ donated projects to help people in need. My heart was full of a desire to help people, but my bank account… not so much. Charity knitting seemed like the perfect way to reconcile the two!
The only problem was, I didn’t know how to do it. What could I knit that others could actually use? Who could I knit for? How could I get it to people who needed it?
If these are the kinds of questions you’re asking… Knitting for Charity, One Stitch at a Time is for you!
Whether you’re new to charity knitting or a longtime charity knitter who wants to organize your thoughts and your knitting, let me assure you that you’re in the right place!
I wrote Knitting for Charity, One Stitch at a Time for someone just like you! I want to help you develop a plan for your charity knitting. With a plan in place, you can knit to help others without spending a lot of money or time figuring out what to knit and where to donate what you’ve knitted.
I have knitted since I was a teenager but stopped as life got complicated and busy. Thanks to Nicole, my interest in knitting resurrected.
I know lots of people are like me, enjoy knitting but cannot dedicate too much time in a huge project or even a medium one, like the sweater I knitted for my husband many years ago which took me years (yes, years) to complete. And that’s when I stopped knitting completely because I felt more like a failure than success upon completion. So, knitting hats, baby blankets, mittens or socks are a good way to continue your knitting. But, who needs 999 hats or blankets.
This eBook will come to your rescue as you will find everything you need to know, from understanding your skill level, defining your goal, finding out charities that meet your goal and of course, fun and useful patterns that you can knit.
Finally, thanks Nicole for writing this book to help her fellow knitters!”

As a relatively new knitter and as someone who is also trying to become more active with charitable activities, I found Nicole’s book incredibly informative. Her book presents all of the information needed in an organized, useful and entertaining fashion. I especially love how she categorized all of the charities by project type so I was immediately directed to a charity who could benefit from my project. Thanks to Nicole’s helpful checklists and organizing strategies, I’m really excited to establish a charity knitting group in my town!”
Now available for the first time ever: Knitting for Charity, One Stitch at a Time in Audiobook Format!
There’s a reason audiobooks are incredibly popular with knitters! Many of us love to read, but hate to put down our needles (or set aside our chores, our exercise, our errands, or anything else we want to get out of the way so we can get back to our knitting!).
Why should Knitting for Charity, One Stitch at a Time be any different? So now, I’m offering you the chance to get all the goodness of KFC1S in audiobook format.
If you have a smartphone, an MP3 player, an iPod, or a car stereo that uses Bluetooth or a USB to play music, you can listen to KFC1S just about anywhere!
And if you just have a CD player and a computer with a CD-ROM drive… no worries. Burn KFC1S audiobook to a CD (be sure you burn it in audio, rather than data, format) and you can listen to it anywhere your CD player can go!
Finally, since I don’t want you to miss out on the massive amount of linked resources… you’ll also receive, with the audiobook, a clickable list of all the resources linked to in the eBook (including the lists of charities).
Buy both and save!
For the best possible value, buy both the eBook and the audiobook together in one package! The eBook contains all the printables; the audiobook contains the ultimate in portability and convenience. You can’t go wrong buying both together!
About the Author
I’ve run Knitting for Charity for almost 4 years. I spend a lot of time online researching charity knitting and finding knitting charities. I’ve also talked with many charity knitters, charity knitting directors, and charity knitting organizers. You could say I’m a little obsessed with knitting, especially charity knitting!
I do all this for one simple reason: so you don’t have to.
A little more about me personally: I’ve been married to my husband Eric since August 1997. We have two delightful daughters, Kiersten (age 17) and Elena (age 11). My daughters and I are Ohio natives transplanted to Oklahoma; my husband is originally from Michigan. We spent the first 15 years of our marriage in Ohio.
In addition to knitting, I love spending time with my fantastic family, singing and teaching kiddos in church, reading, dyeing my hair fun colors (as you can see here!), and nearly all things tennis.
