Toasty Tootsie's Indeed

slippersLook at these wonderful crocheted slippers and slipper socks. Eleven pair of Tootsie's will now be Toasty! Thank you Suzz, these are marvelous. Sooooo nice and heavy. I really love the design you used for your slipper socks. Can you share what pattern you used for these? Click folks to enlarge the picture to see the detail of the 2 way stitches...no clue if that's a good description but I can't think how else to refer to it. Seems to make them really nice and thick. Some I believe were made with double yarn? 6 very nice hats as well.

Scarves 122
Hats 194
Mittens (gloves)56
Socks 48
Slippers 12+11=23
Ghans 11
Squares 179
Sweaters 5

As you probably know 99.9% of the posts are lined up in que each getting a day, these slippers came just a few days after the end of the month so they are party of our Toasty Tootsies Project. Thank you for participating. Look forward to seeing you here often on The Bridge.

Been busy putting together more afghans (working on the revised pink and green, and the red and brown). Both need to be named if anyone has an idea sing out. Will also be posting some pictures of new designs from more of your squares. Stay tuned.

The day this post was written and placed in que our map showed 26 states for 52% of the country. How cool is that. I've done some looking through blogs as I've made blog rounds from the blog log and have figured out where a few of you are from, so have edited the blog log list to reflect that, as well as added to the map. Would still love everyone to chime in. If I don't have the state you're from listed with your name on either list, please let me know by leaving a comment here. Thanks! Am hopeful with continued growth of this will aid me in identifying donations when they arrive. Additionally, it's just plain fun.

Please remember all donations regardless of size and number are valued. All donations are appreciated, and all donations keep someone warm. We help, one stitch at a time. It truly DOES make a difference. THANK YOU!


  1. posting part of an email I received from Suzy, as I feel others will be interested to see what pattern was used

    Sandy, in response to your question on the blog:

    I tried several patterns but the sock style ones are made from this pattern from Yarn Lovers Room.


    It calls for double strands but I made some with only one and some with bulky.

    The back part of the slipper is stitched in back loop only style to add stretchy-ness for fit.


  2. There will be some very HAPPY feet with these beautiful slippers! Nice job, Suzy! Thanks for such a generous donation!

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?
