Knitting Scarves for the Homeless

2 knitted scarves for homelessThese 2 light'n'lofty scarves were knitted. Originally I had planned to donate these scarves to Passions of the Heart, but they turned out warmer then I anticipated they would be. Guess it's been awhile since I've knitted with that yarn and had forgotten how thick and warm it is. So, since they're warm decided they were better suited for people in need of warmth; bodily warmth as well as emotional warmth and these have now gone to our Bridge and Beyond Charity to warm homeless here in Central Ohio.

The picture was taken just before I finished the 2nd scarf, had to tuck ends in and add fringe; but I was busy taking lots of pictures and decided to go ahead with the photo for convenience.

I finished the corner to corner ghan last night except for trim and tucking in ends which hopefully will happen in the next couple of days. So, keeping busy trying to stock pile items for the homeless here in Central Ohio. When the cold hits suddenly, we do want to be prepared.

Please keep your hooks and needles busy the remainder of the summer, help us by spreading the word, AND don't forget to enter the blog contest. We're giving away free yarn!! Read all about the contest and tell all your friends.

15 More posts to go, so get busy.

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?
