Donate Cotton Wash Cloths for Homeless those in Need

cotton washclothsThank you Sally for your 5 cotton washcloths for our June focus, much appreciated. Three of them are knitted in the traditional corner to corner style and 2 are crocheted. These will go into personal care packages for our folks at Faith Mission. The mothers and their children living at Faith Mission have been abused and or homeless and this is temporary housing. Their needs are great. Additional will be supplying our men living under the bridges with personal care packages too.

The current plan is to divide by size and color and package with whatever personal care items have been donated, plus those I have on hand.

This focus of cotton washcloths will run til the end of this month.

There are 5 more days until the lucky winner will be announced for our Comment Contest. That lucky winner will receive a $40.00 shopping spree at JoAnns. As soon as the winner is announced I'll make contact for a mailing address for the gift card. Keep checking in. AND...you still have 5 more days to improve your chances at winning. Remember, the more you comment, the better your chances are.

  2. I think the washcloths are wonderful. I also agree with Harvest Hill Farm's comment I think it is also neat to be able to crochet and knit. I only know how to crochet. Some day I want to learn to knit.
    Take care

  3. Knitting and crocheting are both cool, both are helpful, and both help those in needs. So, which ever you do. Just do it...isn't that like a N commercial or something? I do both but am more comfortable and confident with my crocheting then with my knitting...but working on knitting alot these days. Bothers the arthritis less it seems.

  4. These are very nice and someone will be happy to receive them. I also love the corner to corner pattern. It's one that I can do without thinking too much about and it makes a pretty cloth.

  5. Thanks, Ladies for all the comments. It is fun to both knit and crochet. I learned to knit as a child but gave it up. Did lots of crocheting as a young mother (it was quicker) but over the last few years have returned to knitting. Now I am a grandma (MeMe) and have a bit more time to knit.

  9. Oh I just realized now that I can craft again, I could pull some cotton yarn out and look at that knitting class I was taking. Maybe I can get a decent dishcloth to you. I will do my best! If that fails, I'll turn to my faithful crochet hook.

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?
