Donations might become a Christmas Afghan

This red knitted strip (which I'm counting in the squares area), is being donated from my DD, Christine. She had some yarn left over and just felt like some knitting with nothing specific in mind. So she knitted until she ran out of yarn, figuring I could do something with it. Thank you darling daughter. Love you bunches!
Adding it to recently donated squares from Cheryl S...maybe it will become a Christmas Afghan? Hum....still thinking and need to look at all the other squares I have and see what might work. Rest assured, something will eventually pop into my brain.

Making a Christmas Ghan could be a wonderful item for Project Welcome Home for a family making the transition during the holiday season!

2011 Donations:

357

Misc Items I've not counted misc items like all the personal care items, the neck warmers, head bands or yarn etc.

**Using double yarn makes a slipper super warm and very sturdy, and or make two and put them together. Using different colors inside and out can make them reversible**

All donations regardless of size and number are valued. All donations are appreciated, and all donations keep someone warm. We help, one stitch at a time. YOU truly DO make a difference. THANK YOU!

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?
