Help from Rae's Mother

yarnRae, as you know is our delivery lady. She's the one who hand carries our knitted and crocheted hats, mittens, and scarves to the cold in need there under the bridge; as well as to those in need at the two free clinics. Rae is the lady who prepares hot meals along with several others, making deliveries on Sat. mornings. She volunteers at the two free clinics where our heartfelt donations are also greatly appreciated. This mound of yarn belonged to Rae's mother. Rae lost her mother a short while ago; as many of you may remember (post regarding it here). So, while she is no longer here in the flesh she is reaching out to help others. I will use all the yarn Rae has passed along to me for charity. Something I think her mother would have liked. Not all the colors and types of yarn are appropriate for this cause-The Bridge-but it will all be used for charities in her memory.

In fact, if you look 2 skeins to the right of the yellow yarn, you'll see a partial skein of white which has already been used. It was needed to make 12 inch red, white, and blue granny squares for a Patriotic Cause. You can see the picture and read about it on my other blog...HERE

**I'm still without photo editing software with a non compatible situation. I have a free upgrade from Vista to Windows 7 ordered; though I understand it could take up to 6 weeks. Geessssss, don't really even know if that's going to solve my problem. Thus, my pictures aren't as clear--can't size them down appropiately pixel size. I believe that's why so many of late have been blurry?

**pending pictures of scarves from Patty, do check back

  5. Wow, look at all that beautiful yarn! It's a knitter and crocheters dream! Well, maybe it's just mine. I look at all those skeins and see afghans and scarves and sweaters and mittens! I'm gettng carried away. ::laughing:: But, I do love yarn! Especially, since we had a big snow storm over the weekend here in Pennsylvania! It's cold. I gotta get my fingers working to finish this scarf! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! ~susan~

  7. Cake Angel, you're not alone, it is indeed a dream to all of us who knit and or crochet. I think it helps Rae to know her mother is participating here with us. And it makes me think about my own mother, as this will be both of our First Christmas's without our Mother's

  8. I'm sure I saw the post about Rae's mother at the time, but didn't remember. We never forget though and still miss those we loved and lost. My own Dad is gone a few years now. It seems like yesterday we were telling him goodbye. How nice to see the yarn being used for such a worthy cause.

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?
