I couldn't help myself. I went and reposted on Freecycle and this time I asked for an experienced knitter. Not only did someone reply but they replied back to me! We have a meeting tomorrow for her to come get the supplies and get started on some hats. I am so happy to have found someone to help. She seems legitimate and actually is going to go through with it. I just hope she's a quick knitter and can get them done in a timely fashion (unlike myself of course :) ). Woo hooo for Freecycle!
