Do You Speak Crochet?

LOL...got a kick out of this the other day when I saw it on Facebook.  It does indeed look like a foreign language to folks who don't crochet doesn't it.

Are you bilingual?  Do you speak crochet?  I do she says with a smile.

Folks it's been below 60 the last week here at night, getting cool to quickly for this time of year, I do hope you've all got yarn at hand, to do what you can to help others.

Thank you.

Coalition for Homeless, Street Card for Homeless

 These pages though a bit hard to read in picture format are what they call a street card and for anyone local a nice item to have on hand if you see someone in need.  And for those not local, check your city services to see if they have a similar item.  Print a few and keep in your car, or available in your church or other organizations you might belong to.
You can see this is a pretty extensive list, making you feel there's lots of help out there. And there is a good bit; but.........do the people who need know what's available?  Do the people who help know who to call,or have a phone to make the call?  Do those in need have transportation to get to the location where help might be available?  You'll note bus stop locations are included on this street card, which is an important peace.  Despite this list there are still many many people in need.  Here in central  Ohio the last stat I saw indicated  on any given night there were 12,000 here in central Ohio only.

Another difficulty with getting help can be couples vs singles.  Take another look at the list, you see single men, single  women, families, you don't see couples listed so if a man and a woman are together and in need of help that makes it more difficult, not impossible......but harder.  People need help, not roadblocks.

Please check your local area, do you have something like this street card  in your area?  PLEASE, let me know in your comments below, in an email, or in the contact me button in the right side bar.  I would love you to send me your area's equivalent help form.  Let's get some of these posted, to help others become more aware and encourage participation.  The weather's been chilly here already, way too early it feels like fall with it dipping  down to the 50's and 60's already at night.  I'm hopeful summer will return because if it's this cool now, I dread thinking how cold and long the fall and winter will be.

Got Yarn?  Don't leave home with out it folks.  The Homeless Need Your Help!

Hats and Scarves of Many Colors

 Look at this wonderful  donation by our dynamic duo...the sisters again, Catherine and Wendy H.  Hats and scarves in every imaginable color and then some.  Both the hats and scarves come in a variety of sizes so some will work for the kiddo's,some for the ladies and a possibly the men folk as well.  I'm partial to the blackhat with orange stripes, looks like team colors that I think folks will go  for.  AND maybe that nice solid blue scarf, after all who doesn't like blue. One of the colors always good for either gender.
Keep up the good work ladies.  Dynamic Duo and Caring Sisters...very cool.

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
