Donating Socks for The Men

socksWhile at Sams the other day I picked up another pack of 12 socks for Bridge folks. Socks are always in need, summer, winter, spring and fall. Cold wet feet make everyone miserable so the need is on going.

Since tomorrow is November 1st, and our focus will be Men (the group most in need) through The Jack Otis Memorial Month, thought this would help to kick start it. October's mitten focus wasn't particularly successful so I'll also mention here Men who live outdoors need mittens to keep from getting frost bite.

As of the writing of this scheduled post, we've already experienced 2 mornings of heavy frost with about 10 nights of temps in the low 40's and 30's. Please think warm, as you think about items for our men. Please check in tomorrow for the official start of November's Jack Otis Memorial Month and our focus on Men in need.

  1. I have mittens to send in! I see the need focus for a particular month and make those things during that month and send them in at the end of the month. Maybe others work that way also and more mittens will come is soon.

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?
