Personal Care Items Always a BIG hit with those in Need

This thoughtful crocheted donation comes from our good friend and loyal supporter RoseMarie from Tennessee.  No doubt many of you knew that immediately when you saw her signature decorations on the slippers.  RoseMarie has donated slippers, cotton washcloths, personal care items and slipper socks (the tube shaped item).  As I type this she's busy designing a pattern I'll soon be adding to the mittens tab, please keep checking in.

Mittens are always an item we don't get enough off, and they're an item not the easiest for many of us to make, knit or crochet.  She's been working on converting writs warmers/fingerless gloves from double crochet to single crochet to add warmth.  My thought was that for those living in the shelters these would be a welcome item and perhaps help stretch the mittens.  Naturally they'll not be as warm as a full pair of gloves or mitts, but an item I thought more of us would be inclined/able to make.

Stay tuned, and as always RoseMarie, please keep up the good work.

Crochet Hats, Scarves and Slippers for Ohio's Homeless

 Hats, scarves, and slippers in this picture.  Awesome colors.  This marvelous donation is from our friend Diana K.  She and her hook must be battery charged.  She used the chevron (ripple) pattern to create these interesting scarves.  I love how the texture and shape show up so well with all nice solid colors.
And........yet there's more.  More hats and scarves crocheted and donated by Dear Diana.  Please keep up the good work Diana, we so appreciate all your efforts and generosity.

Folks, if you missed the previous post, please scroll back.  A knitted hat pattern was linked, and it was added to the hat tab.  Please check it out.

Scrolling back to this date last year, Sept 21st, 2013 I note we had donated 97 pairs of mittens/gloves which is 33 more then we've to date this year.  If you're one who can knit or crochet mittens, please do.  Cold hands are miserable.  Stay tuned folks, our good friend, RoseMarie is currently working on a pattern variation for fingerless gloves (crocheted) that I'll be posting to the mittens page.  While not full mittens, they would still be welcomed by those living in the shelters.

Hats: 571+5=576
Scarves: 312+6=318
Socks: 110
Afghans: 15

**Reminder to please remove hair (both human and furry friends), odors (from smoke or pets, cooking etc) from your donations.  Since all items require washable fibers, laundering your items before mailing is very helpful.  Laundering not only removes the hair and odors, it softens the fibers and gives a more finished look to all items.**

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?
