June's focus is Cotton WashCloths

A short while ago I knitted a corner to corner camo cotton washcloth.
And then had fun with a yellow butterfly washcloth.
Got both at the ready and hope to make some more. What a perfect short term project, light weight for the hot seasons...throw it in your purse and work on it at lunch...and or in your brief case. Must be a true connection. I had decided we'd knit and crochet and donate these quite awhile ago; just wasn't sure which month. Then spoke with Rae who indicated she was going to have a need with the guys under The Bridge (s). Then several days ago a call went out on Facebook from Jennifer that Faith Mission was really in need.

Cotton and or cotton blend wash cloths. We knitters and crocheters know how much we like them, how nice they are on our skin; think of those living outdoors with weathered skin. They think they are special when they receive our hand knit and crocheted washcloths.

The mothers and kids at Faith Mission will know someone cares when they receive a pretty, cute, and special hand made cloth.

Get your hooks and needles going folks, this is the first time we've been asked to supply these, though we have in the past; the need right now is great. Let's flood them with soft, well made thoughtful knitted and crocheted washcloths.

  7. There are some free patterns for cloths on the net - some of them really fun! Or, if you're on Ravelry, there are some knit-a-longs or Crochet-a-longs with squares that, if made in cotton would make great facecloths. I like to try new patterns in cotton because it's cheap and when I'm done, I've learned something and have something to send to someone who can enjoy a handknit. I've got one done, but hope to knock out 3 more by the end of the month. Thanks Sandy for keeping us motivated by making available such great "focuses" - one of many great things you do here!

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?
