CraftHope just announced their first project for 2012. They are looking for handmade beanies and tote bags for kids with cancer. I know we have some crafty people here who could lend a hand. :)
I can't knit but I will rustle up some totes.

woohoo, awesome, thanks for posting this! I have some nice sport weight yarn I can start knitting with. :)

Excellent! I am going to try to recruit my coworker, who is a fabulous knitter, into doing some hats.

Crochet Me.com (www.crochetme.com) has a wonderfully large Free Patterns section and several patterns for both bags and beanies. You'll find them under the Free Resources section and then click on Member Patterns.

Enter at your own risk though... ;) :D

um... anything "yarnie" is dangerous for me, lol. That reminds me, I've been wanting to check out KnitPick's cotton blend yarns!

As soon as I saw Marge's title post, I knew this was perfect for it!!

Crochet Me ~ Leftovers Purse/ Bag (http://www.crochetme.com/media/p/95182.aspx)

I saw this the other night when going through the various freebie patterns in the Member Patterns section over there and copied/pasted it into my Word program to print out at a later date, as my Printer cartridges are pretty much done. Only problem was, I couldn't remember what page it was on over there after I saw Marge's posting here.

Having to go through all of those tempting projects...What a horrible time I've had tonight... ;) :D

It really is perfect though, as who doesn't have scrap caches of yarn that while isn't enough to start anything w/, also isn't little enough in amount to toss either? I plan on making one for myself.

As soon as I get those new Printer Cartridges that is. :D
