Counting Scarves, One at Time

crocheted scarves
My last post with numbers shows we're making some headway folks. Thanks bunches for Sandie's consistency. Her projects are always well made, attractive and so appreciated. We're in receipt of another scarf from her. This one is Patriotic-Red-White& Blue. Very nice indeed. Scarf #109

Hats 178 (22 needed to reach goal of 200)
Mittens 43 pairs (57 need to reach goal of 100)
Scarves 109 (91 needed to reach goal of 200)

Hope you all were able to view the last 2 video's I posted here, if not please please scroll back and take a look. I fear the need may be greater than ever. Our weather is turning very quickly, cooler far cooler than what is normal for this time of year. We've closed the windows, have on jeans, and sweatshirts and it's still pretty nippy. Normally it's hot in August, not so much this year. Though that has some blessings for those of us not in need of running the air conditioner; I do worry what that means for on down the road.

Thanks to all who've helped throughout this past year. I'm hoping to reach some new helping hands to enlarge our group of big hearted helpers.


  1. These cold mornings have been a good reminder of what's to come. I keep thinking about the videos and how things are right here in our own city....Thanks to everyone for all that they do!

  2. Sandy,

    Wow, you sure are busy. I do a little knitting, if you count the nifty knitter, lol. I have several baby hats I could send you if you think you could use them. I will also start working on some men's hats so I can send you a couple before it gets super cold.

    I'll work up a post in the next day or so as well.

  3. That's another one that was a little different, using up yarns I had on hand at the time. With a little imagination, it can all become useful and keep someone warm.

  4. Reminds me of when we were kids and colored. People didn't tell us we had to use only 1 color, right. Mixing things up is fun and useful.

  5. I think it's great we can use scraps of different colors to make something both functional and pretty.

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?
