Look at these colors!

crocheted scarves
Another fabulous box delivered 2 days ago. Look at these colors, so nice! Scarves #86-87-88-89-90-91 and #92. All 7 of these scarves crocheted by Beth (crochet princess). They will be perfect for those folks at the clinic, some teens and younger children. I'll be seeing SIL tomorrow in order to pass these along.

Thanks so much Beth! Someone ask a few weeks ago if we would be continuing now that the weather is finally breaking. The answer YES. Some of our nights are still cool, so the need probably will continue for a short while longer. Then either Rae or I will store them so that when the weather breaks again in the fall, we'll be ready. Rather than having people have to wait until we get our fingers and needles flying again.

Look where we are folks with our goals:
Hats 200-175 ONLY 25 hats to meet goal
Scarfs 100-92 ONLY 8 to meet goal
Mittens 100-41 Need 59 pairs to meet our goal

We will happily accept items beyond our goals.

As always my deepest appreciation for all you've all done! Keep up the good work.

  1. I have a wool scarf which will be heading your way later today. It's fine if you want to hold it for next year since it's wool. Your choice. I think I have enough yarn left to make either hats or another scarf. Which would you prefer at this point?

  2. Is this what you continue to do? Hold the scarves donated during the summer months until the weather turns?

  3. Yes and no. Items are needed all year really. There's only about 3 months when someone wouldn't need a hat outside, probably July, August, and September. And even then we've been known to have frost in September. I keep Rae supplied and she always has things with her when she's delivers food, just in case.

    I'll continue to take items to Faith Mission, they have the ability to store some and that way no one is caught off guard.

  4. Hi:
    I tried to leave a comment before, but I guess I did something wrong.
    Here goes again:
    I'm Wendy Lee from Freehold, NJ, and I'd like to knit or crochet scarves a/o blankets for the needy in our state.
    Please tell me where to send stuff I make, and any specific instructions I made need to follow.
    RSVP..Thanks..Wendy Lee..wenbowl@gmail.com

  5. I collect items for Ohio Wendy, not NJ so don't know where you should send them there. Followed the link to your blogger page, but it's a blank so was unable to leave you any information there.

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?
