Knitting in Sunny Florida Aids Ohio's Homeless

 Our good friend and long time supporter, Sandra R from the sunny state of Florida hit a fabulous end of the season sale and picked up all these knit hats.  Our mission is of course hand made, but she wisely didn't pass up this opportunity.  After all 14 hats, means 14 more head will be warmer.  How wonderful is that!  A nice variety of both size and color in the lot which will be helpful too many.
If you scroll back, you'll see a wonderful Log Cabin Style Knitted Afghan she made in addition to wise shopping....AND mittens, hats, and cotton washcloths in this picture.  Sandra has been super super busy!  I love and always get especially excited with her mittens!  Notice the style hats folks (remember you can always click to enlarge the picture to see details better), nice and long and stretchy gives one the ability to roll the brim.  I've done that with hat in the lower right, the 2 tone gray and burgundy, so you can see.  As always, special thanks for tagging all your hats with size, and mittens as well.

Thank you for your hard work, your on going support are truly valued.

Donating a Knitted Log Cabin Afghan

LOVELY!  This lovely log cabin style afghan is knitted by our good friend, Sandra R from the Sunshine State of Florida.  Sandra, has been a long time and very generous supporter or Bridge and Beyond.  Please click to enlarge so you can all the details, and large variety of colors.  Truly a work of art.  The log cabin style afghan is a throwback to a very traditional style quilt made my many ladies quilting bees.  It was a wonderful way to use up left over pieces of fabrics from other sewing projects.  The same idea certainly comes through with yarn as well.  I really love this style, and love the colors work well for a man, or a woman.  The ghan is sized large enough to be a family ghan as well.

Beautiful work Sandra.  As always, please keep up the good work.  This will indeed be a prized position to the person/family that receives it.

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?
