Knitting 4 x 4 for Homeless

scarves and washclothsSuzann from Tennessee, SSeger on Rav knitted and donated 4 scarves and 4 cotton washcloths. The scarves are varying sizes and a couple are knitted I believe with double yarn which will make them especially warm. The cotton washcloths are the standard corner to corner design. I've often wondered how many items we've all made together in that popular corner to corner method...be it knit or crochet, washcloth, or dishcloth, or ghan, or baby blanket. Always such a winner!

Many thanks for your thoughtful donation, it's greatly appreciated. Please keep up the good work.

  1. There is nothing warmer or cushier or cozier than double stranded garter stitch - my favorite - hands down. Great donation!

  2. Sandy I want to thank you for what you are doing with your charity. You are helping so many people who are so desperately in need. Going through such a hard time lately myself, I can really just imagine how special these people feel when they receive your wonderful donations. I'm sure it makes their day. It's not the warmth that helps them the most, in my opinion. It's knowing that there are people out there who recognize their struggle and who want to help. The only thing worse than being cold is being cold and thinking no one really cares or no one even knows it's happening to you. I think it's very easy for people living on poverty (or on the streets) to feel very isolated and alone.

    I hope to someday soon start making contributions myself so I can help give people hope and inspiration during their hard times.

  5. Good afternoon. Yes, I did take 2 different colors to knit 2 of the scarves. It helps to make them nice & warm. Plus, it adds extra color instead of being just a solid color. Glad they will be used to keep someone warm this winter!

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.
