I might need a Calculator!!!!

First picture is hats and scarfs from Molly. I was having some light issue when I photographed. There are 9 hats that are dark gray and burgundy in the back, 2 red-white-and blue hats, a solid red, and the white and red. A scarf matches the white and red and one of the red-white-blue hats. 13 hats (34-35-36-37-38-39-40-41-42-43-44-45-45) AND Scarfs 25 & 26

I received some misc items, 2 neck collars from Scarlet, a shawl, 2 child scarfs from Molly. Thankfully at this time children are not there under the bridge living out in the elements. These items will be in reserve and or after I get with Rae next will determine if they might work for those at the clinic who are in need; but sometimes have a roof over their heads.

I've received a few notes with questions and while most of this is a repeat (some folks have joined us recently and didn't see the first couple of posts), so I'll add some info here. Our goal is to make warm items, sized appropiate for adult men as most of our homeless people living under the bridge are men such as Hats and Scarfs. We're striving for 100 each but will continue this effort once we hit the 100 mark. We need gloves and mittens as well; perhaps vests or warm sweaters. Fibers? Acrylics worsted weight and wool are both great. Solid stitches probably best for warmth, most folks consider the normal size scarf to be 5-8 inches wide and somewhere around 60 inches long. If you have other questions, please email me at sandycrochet@gmail.com. If you have someone you'd like to invite as a team member email me their email.



  1. By count the hats and scarf count almost match. And all those wonderful colors and when you stop to think about each item and all the stitches in them. Each was made with love. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!

  2. You said it Ghost...everyone's effort gives me such a wonderful feeling. Together WE CAN and are making a differnece.

    How I wish we could hear these types of human stories on the news instead of the gloom and dispair...I believe in people and their goodness and I think it's a shame we see and hear only the negative things on the TV.

    Hugs to all
    psssssss anyone have the link to James page...I'm in search of it.

  3. Wow! Everything is awesome! Great job everyone! The colors are so cheerful.

  4. wow, people are so GREAT!!! :] It makes me smile, thinking of all the homeless that will be warmer this winter.

  5. So much loveliness. I am glad to read the approximate dimensions here. It jives with what I've read for other efforts as well and that is the length I generally shoot for unless there's a yarn shortage. :-)

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?
