Scrumptious Slippers and Squares Donated

crocheted squares, knitted slippers4 pairs of warm, soft knitted slippers and 38 mostly crocheted squares from Nelda in Michigan being donated for Ohio's homeless..........SCRUMPTIOUS!! Lots of fun colors in the squares too.

Nelda, if you're out there reading this please email me sandycrochet@gmail.com When I tried to email you to let you know your wonderful and thoughtful donation arrived the email was returned as mail demon...Apparently you have a different email? If anyone is in a group with Nelda would you sing out so I can contact her?
**edited to add...we've made contact, thanks!

Just a handful of days left in our July focus of 7-10 inch squares before we move onto our August focus of hats for men. Please think warm, large, and colors appropriate for men. Men live outdoors when their homeless, and often only get a night here and there in a shelter so please nothing with an open weave.

*Actually, nothing with an open weave is our rule of thumb for all hats, scarves, and mittens and we need items to be warm*

**Squares will be collected again in the year 2012.

***Would love to get an email from all local knitters and crocheters interested in doing a work day. If you're in and around Columbus and would be available to collect up for a work day, please zap me an email. ***

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?
