Crocheted Donation From Malmstrom Air Force Base Helps Ohio's Homeless

Thank you Sheena Y at Malmstrom AirForce Base.  Sheena has a group on base called The Crochet Club and they've gotten together and crochet hats, scarves, and slippers.  I don't know how many folks are involved in the Crochet Club or their names; but I can certainly see the size of their caring hearts with this thoughtful donation for Ohio's Homeless.

Notice the items made with red and gray for Buckeyes!  Also, click to enlarge and look at the cute hat on the far right lower corner.  How cute is that.  Some child is going to be really really excited.

Malmstrom Air Force is located in Great Falls, Cascade County, Montana.  It was built in 1941 and is named after Colonel Einar Axel Malmstrom, a World War II POW.

Nice work Crochet Club, and hope to see you here often on Bridge and Beyond.

Hats:      192 -18 = 174

Please note the category of shawl, shrugs, ponchos etc has reached our little goal, same as last year of 1.........but please please please.........don't let that stop you from making more of these items.  Likewise note we've definitely reached our goal for rain poncho's.  Rain ponchos's serve many purposes so we will probably still need some....down the line, but not for awhile.

All donations regardless of size and number are valued. All donations are appreciated. The Power of One is awesome, and when we work together The Power of One becomes The Power of Many.

Buckeye Blanket is Growing

Some headway with Buckeye Blanket here.  You can see a 3rd color, black (well almost a dark charcoal gray) has been added.  Some of the rows are single crochet, some are double crochet to mix up some texture a bit.  The variegated Buckeye yarn is interesting I think, but very course to work with and will need I think more than one round in the wash when completed to soften it up.  I'm always amazed how different yarn can feel....even when it's the same brand and weight.  The solid light gray is Red Heart WW and the variegated in Red Heart WW, but the light gray is much softer.  The dark charcoal/black.....was a dab left over for something that someone donated and is without a label so I don't know what it is, brand wise, but it too is softer than the variegated.

I like to mix things up so won't be doing the same number of rows on each side or within a color.

Crocheted Warm Items Help Homeless

Thank you Emily K for this thoughtful donation of crocheted goodies.  As you can see, Emily has been busy crocheting hats, scarves, mittens, and fingerless gloves!  You all know how excited I get when we get mittens.  Really nice Emily.  Love how many different head sizes you've made warm with this donation.  Particularly like the hat on the right with warm orange and earth stripes!

Emily has also included some personal care items, AND batteries.  Folks batteries are always needed by those living out in the elements for things like flashlights; though it's not something I've asked for in the past.  Batteries are heavy and I was concerned about the weight issues and it making postage more costly; but.........they are indeed an item that is needed and appreciated.

Many thanks Emily, please keep up the good work.

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?
