Camo Cotton Cloth for the Homeless

camo cotton clothNeeded a small project with an overly busy work schedule and so made this camo 100% cotton wash cloth. 100% cotton wash cloths will be out focus next month. This one is knitted corner to corner and measures about 11 inches square. Started a yellow butterfly one also, a first for me trying to make a design with the knitted stitches. Will let you all know how that turns out.

Lots of details on this camo, stitch count etc which I did for fun and posted about here on Sandy's Space, if you're interested.

Just added washcloths to the list of things collected and need to go back and count the ones others have sent. Previously I left those in misc, but am going to add them for a continous count. Off the top of my head, I remember Sarah S from The Hive has sent some crocheted ones. So, if you've sent some to me in the past, please sing out and let me know so I can find them here on the blog and get them tallied. (looks like there were 2 this year, others previously)

Blogger's been out of commission for several days, and so there have no new posts for you all to comment on. Additionally, I am going to be gone the end of the month and so have decided to extend the comment contest until June 15th. Keep busy commenting and improve your chances to win the gift card.

May's focus is scarves. Give a Square will be activated again this summer during the month of July, so if you're busy making squares, make yourself a note to mail them in July. I'll be adding a year long calendar to this blog in the next day or so. Please stay tuned.

Scarves 183
Mittens (gloves) 66
Socks 74
Slippers 37
Ghans 29 (2 went to Pine Street Earlier)

Squares 241
Sweaters 5
Ponchos 43

  1. Have a cotton washcloth on the needles now. Thanks for the inspiration with the camo!!

  2. I'm thrilled there is such a variety of things needed. It keeps me from getting tired of knitting the same things. I love the camo cloth. I'm not sure I've ever seen camo cotton before, but then again I've never looked.

  3. I'll try to get in gear & send some crocheted washcloths in June. They're a good project when crochet time is limited!

  4. Thanks psmflowerlady and Harvest Hill Farm, appreciate it.

    I like the variety too Yvonne

  5. Very nice washcloth. The men will appreciate the darker colors. I love the way you change and adapt to the needs as you discover them. Good job! I haven't forgotten about making a scarf for you - got sidetracked with some other things.

  6. Being flexible is key for continued growth I think, Sandie. Thanks, and believe me I understand sidetracked. lol

  7. Great job, Sandy! This is the type of cloth that I like to make too!

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?
