Donations for Ohio's Homeless

donations for homelessDonations for Ohio's Homeless and others in need prove how big hearted knitters, crocheters, and loomers are. See what I mean! Take time and look around here on the blog and you'll be amazed with the wonderful giving people who knit, crochet, and support Bridge and Beyond. Psmflowerlady (Tammy M) has done it again with 7 squares, 5 cotton washcloths, 4 pairs of mittens, 2 rain ponchos, socks, soap, deodorant, toothbrushes, a knitted poncho (super soft), and a scarf!

AWESOME....I tell everyone I met about how good I believe are, and how much good I believe they can do and are willing to do. People who donate to help others, to help people they don't know are AWESOME.

  2. purple in the center is a bunny. Soft and adorable

  3. The bunny is a free Lion Brand Pattern - Rav Link and ths burgundy square is from Big Book of Knitting Stitch Patterns (p 14) called Diagonal Lines. Thanks Sandy for all your collection efforts and taking the time to post pictures of the stuff we send. I feel blessed to have found sound an awesome group of "helpers".

  4. Thanks for posting link to bunny pattern, and for info on the square. I don't have that book, but am going to look to see if a stitch with that name appears elsewhere.

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?
