yarn cakesWanted to share this poem with you all. My SIL wrote this for me some time back and I really like it and thought I'd post so you all could enjoy. It so fits our cause.

Give me a hook

And as least one skein

Don’t need a book

To begin the chain.

It might start from here

It might start from there

Our yarn makes warmth

With hats to wear.

Our yarn spreads love

To nameless faces

Our yarn is a gift

That goes many place.

We judge no one

By the lives they lead

Our yarn makes us humble

Humble indeed.

Thank you so much Jan for this very meaningful poem

  3. What a nice poem and so true! Thanks for sharing it.

  4. Glad you all like the poem, my SIL is very talented and I think the poem says exactly what we're all about with our yarn


  5. I've never been able to write a poem, so really admire those who can. Nice poem and it seems so very appropriate.


  6. That stand of yarn has traveled many miles.
    I have seen the hats you make for the homeless
    over here in Oregon.
    Jans poem says it all.,,,,

    It took a lot of yarn,
    it traveled many miles.
    that is a lot of love
    that just keeps on giving.
    And look how many
    just saying thank you

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?
