I think the blanket idea is a good one, my only concern is the sheer amount of work that one or people are going to have in assembling the thing, (the organising would be a right pain too) and then the associated postage to send this lovingly handcrafted to the charity of choice.

(otherwise, its a great idea)

It might work if your were a person with access to a "bee" or local group of people willing to help you put it together. And you could hand deliver it to a lcoal charity office.

WELL ... I LOOOVE this idea! And, I live in philly where I have access to dozens of great charities in need. Plus, I participate in several knitting groups that I know would love to help assemble.

In fact, I would be ecstatic to do this! ... I just "opened" up my time (i.e. quit grad school hehe) to allow for helping and volunteering more.

A few more ideas:

1) Cables
2) Knitting with Beads
3) Tassels/Fringe
4) Knitting on the Cheap -- acrylic only!  (shocking, I know...)

Oooh, I like the big needles one...back to my knitting roots.   Smiley  Or maybe big gauge...I knit tight, so even on big needles my stuff doesn't look chunky or lacy.

i like the knitting with beads idea. or how about rainbow projects. you have to use every colour of the rainbow (corny i know). or knitted everyday items eg: food, cutlery, cars, buses, t.v's etc etc. i also like the idea of knitting with materials other than yarn

Man I love this ideas board, heres another one to add to the list, how about geometric shapes? Example: knit a 3D box. The beginners could knit 6 squares, whilst the advances could do shaping etc.

Imagine the stuff people could come out with, stars,hexagons. Fun Cheesy

I might as well post it, since I mentioned it in this thread.  Cover one or more trees with a cosy.  You can use up your abandoned WIPs, or old sweaters, and beautify a public space!  I especially love the Tree Sweater, here, which also includes a link to the pattern - a good challenge for Arbor Day, which is in April I think.
