I have a real interest in knitting for charity (especially for project Linus). However, my husband is a smoker. I know that many if not all charities will not allow donations from a smoker's home. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can do this? Or am I out of luck until he puts the fire out?   Sad

can you do your knitting elsewhere?? like a cafe, and then keep your knitting in your car?? that way it's never around him, and you can still knit....

I've thought of this. Hmmm...I guess I could knit at one of our area libraries. I could totally zone out with my MP3 player, too. I would just have to clear sometime to spend at least an hour a week there. I'll probably do this. Thanks for the responses. Smiley

I have a couple of suggestions:  When you bring your projects home from your remote location, keep them in a Zip-lock type bag (they are made in even giant sizes).  Also, washing your project in a baby friendly detergent, maybe Ivory Snow or something, might help to make extra sure no smoke clings.  Hang it outside to dry and voila!  Clean, fresh charity project.
