Better than Christmas!

crocheted hats
crocheted hat, scarf, mittens, and vest sets
I'm like a kid at Christmas each time I open a pouch or box with items made from various hands, different stitches........all with the most needed and common element...LOVE. Truly. I get giddy, hubby laughs at me. I get high on the love, the caring, the commitment my fellow stitchers have. What an AWESOME group of people.

Look at the wonderful donation that came today from Ghost. 3 Hats (#66-67-68). The one Stella is wearing in the picture has the great details of popcorn stitches I think they're called. Built in ear flaps. GREAT colors! What yarn is this Ghost?

AND her specially designed chest warmer (if you're as old as me, you might remember wearing these square type vests back in the 60's). Same cool yarn. A matching scarf... (scarf #41), and DRUM ROLL............ our first mittens (Mittens #1 # 2). She's made 2 different patterns (and is still looking for yet a better one). So someone can have mitts, vest, hat and someone else can have mitts and hat or something like that. They'll be not only warm; but stylish.

The mitten pattern I was anxious to try, was one that Ghost used and says...hum; we need another one. Will let you know if I give it a whirl or try something else. But, I'm thrilled to have our first mittens. Hands get might cold. I know. For some reason I didn't have gloves or mittens in my pockets tonight when I left work. It was cold, windy, and icy. I had to scrap the windows with bare hands. Ouch. Let's see what we can do to help these folks who are out in the elements far longer than I was with mittens and or gloves.

HUGS to all our team members, our followers, and our helpers over in yahoo groups and on Raverly. You are all the GREATEST!


  1. Wow, thanks for all the hight praise. It really is not all that but I know will be useful. The yarn as I stated on my blog is Red Heart Strata in Mosaic. It was sent to me by my sister Scarlet. And I had enough to make a nice combination of items. More will be coming but first I have other charities that await my items. It is really not much since others have done much more but I know it will be useful. Thanks all for looking.

  2. I have that pattern saved and I fully intend to make one of these at some point. I should make a list of all the projects I want to do.

  3. I think I saved that pattern maybe too, hum, just go look. I had forgotten all about it. Fun looking back through some of the older posts.

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?
