June is, Sock it to me Month

We all continue to knit and crochet even during the warm months as hats, mittens, and scarves can then be stock piled to be ready as soon as frost hits. Frost can hit pretty quickly and unexpectedly here in Central Ohio; so please keep those hands busy.

In addition, I'm officially kicking off a drive for socks. White or colored, socks one size fits all are needed. Let's focus on men's socks as that's the bulk of those living under the bridges, and elsewhere at the moment.

Store bought socks. I buy in bulk which is much more cost effective. PLEASE socks are something even our non knitters and crocheters can help with. Contact me for my mailing address if you feel you can help out by sending a package of socks. Several people have pointed out it's more cost effective for them to forward a check vs paying the cost of mailing socks. That's been done several times and I take the check and head to Kohl's, Sams, or Target...whomever is offering the best deal at the time. I can happily buy the socks here and save you all the postage costs.

Help by buying socks, or by sending a check. Help by telling your friends, neighbors, co-workers, and fellow bloggers about the need. While socks are needed all year long, we'll make June our special "Sock it to me month".

Many thanks for all you do, please keep up the good work. Together we do make a difference, each and everyday someone is warmer, because YOU care.

Bless YOU!

  1. Here is the beginning of Sock it to Me Month. But I know these folks need socks all the time so I will do my best to remember to send sock money with my next shipment!

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?
