Final Counts for Give a Square!

crocheting and knitting for homeless
Thank you Sarah S (from The Hive) for your ongoing support and beautiful work to help our cold homeless here in Ohio. Look at these 3 darling sets of matching mittens and hats! The hats are knitted, the mittens are crochet. In additions she sent 4 very nice crocheted squares which you know I'll add as I continue to design and join afghans for those in need.

The 2 pair of heavy warm socks is such a bonus and the men will really appreciate them.

Thanks again Sarah for your thoughtful donations.

The Give a Square program was a 3 month program and
during those 3 months 390 squares were collected and added to some I had on hand. To date we've donated 17 afghans to the homeless (2 went to our friends at Pine Street). Waiting in the wings to be assembled are 8 ghans already designed. In addition, I have enough squares and rectangles on hand to design more! Very definitely a good project that produced a good outcome. I'll continue to design and post pictures and continue to work on assembling and keep you all posted. Pictures of all ghans available by clicking on above red Give a Square Text.

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?
