  1. What a nice donation, Alexis. There are so many useful things and I know your red, white and blue squares will be put with others to make an awesome afghan.

  2. For those of you with limited time to knit/crochet..how about buying store bought cotton washcloths and crochet an edging on em

  3. Not a bad idea Patty, but one needs one of those tools to get the holes in the washcloth without it running, can't think of the name of it at the moment; and the idea behind our mission is handmade, so they know someone took the time to make something special for them.

  4. Great first time washcloth, Alexis! Hope you will continue with us and make many more! The personal items are so needed too! What a super donation......THANKS!

  5. I use a small crochet hook for the holes or a darning needle

  6. Patty tell us about that, would be nice for a blanket edge to with some nice fleece. I really can't think of the name of the tool, it's like a whole punch. You don't have trouble with the hole not staying a hole but taring? I'd love to try this, even if not for the bridge. Sounds like a good idea.

  7. Nope no trouble at all...Joann's sells a tool called an awl..also there is a template called EdgeryDoo you can get online...try using a small crochet hook and practice with a washcloth

  8. EdgerDoo, I think is the tool I was trying to think of, thanks for posting, it was driving me nuts not being able to come up with the name I'm gonna give it a whirl with the small hook and let you know how I do. Thanks for your help.

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?
