Helping from Head to Toe

socks, slippers, poncho'sThank you Yvonne for helping warm our homeless from Head to Toe. Poncho's have hoods, and socks help warm the feet. With this thoughtful donation of 6 pairs of socks, 4 ponchos, and a pair of slippers you're helping our homeless truly head to toe! The slippers are knitted with double yarn, so are nice and thick and warm. Many thanks!

7 More Days of April Showers, folks. Still plenty of time for you to get in on the action and help keep a homeless person in need dry.

**This is post #398, only 2 more to go until we reach milestone 400. PLEASE don't miss it, a special announcement for a contest you really don't want to miss will be announced.**

***Reminders, tuck in ends when you change or add yarn, stay away from open-see through type stitches (if you're able to see your hand through your projects, try going down a size with your hook to obtain a tighter and warmer item). Though we highlight an item each month, we continue to collect hats, scarves, mittens, and slippers all year long. When you come visit the blog, please leave a comment so we know you were here.***

Thank you to all for all do.

  1. As I type, I can hear the rain BEATING down on my roof and thunder in the background. Those ponchos are sure going to be appreciated Yvonne. LOVE your slippers. I bet the double yarn makes them toasty warm. I've got to learn how to knit those someday - yours look awesome!

  2. Thanks for the nice comments. I'm glad I can help. Yvonne

  3. Thanks, Yvonne! All these items will be a big help to our neighbors! LOVE those slippers!

  4. Thanks psmflowerlady, and Sally for your thoughtful comments. Like psmflowerlady said, as I type this...I again hear the rain. Different day, but the same problem.

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?
