Helping the Homeless is a year long Quest

knitted items for homelessBeautiful, beautiful. Look what Linda in sunny Florida sent us~ She and her knitting needles have been very busy playing together. 3 hats, can you believe how cute the red pinky one in the lower right is......or the scarlet and gray with earflaps that Stella's showing off. Toooooooo cute for sure. 3 pair of mittens, red, green, and a cool variegated pair; and a neat neck gator AND an awesome multi-colored scarf. These beauties were all knitted with nice soft warm yummy yarn. Thank you bunches Linda!

Folks the weather here is finally warm, or at least it is most days; though we've continued to have some nasty cool wet nights which always causes me to look ahead, plan ahead for a few months down the road. Let's keep those hooks and needles flying so when the unpredictable central Ohio weather turns we'll be ready and people won't go cold. We do continue to knit, crochet, loom and collect all year long.

Remember June is Sock it to Me Month. If you can, we'd love to collect some socks for the men. White or dark colors. I buy in bulk when I see a good sale. If you can send socks great; if you'd prefer to save on postage and send money towards socks that too is good. Socks for wet feet are needed all year long.

For all you continue to do, Thank you!

  3. The hats, scarves and mittens are beautiful! I keep track of your blog on a regular basis and feel bad because I don't have time or energy to crochet until farming season is over.

  4. Harvest Hill Thanks for keeping track of us, it's appreciated. But, please don't feel bad...we all do what we can when we can. This is a no pressure situation.

    If you're wanting to help in some way when things on the farm are swamped, send some socks from the store or blog about us on your blog, add our badge. There are always ways to help when time is tight. It happens to us all.

    Thanks for your support

  6. Hi there, I just came from JuneZach's and read your post. I don't knit but I would love to help you promote your blog. Just let me know what you need to have done. I sure will look for socks too.
    This is a wonderful thing that you do. It is like we do in the animal world, try to help all the shelters and homeless animals.
    Have a great day.

  7. Sandy - I've been off Blogger for a year and don't remember how to send people messages, so I'm leaving this here. Email me at tommequilts@cableone.net and we'll talk about how to do those "percent finished" things. It's something you add to your template - I can email you the code.

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?
