60 Loomed hats from our good friend, Frank, the one I've named the Luscious Loomer. 60 kids will now have warm heads. AWESOME! Frank I think maybe I asked last year, but don't remember. Which size loom do you use for your hats? I divided this up for kids and teens at the Y's Family Shelter, and the kids at the free clinics. I posted some info about sizing and color the other day (sizing info from Bev's blog). I wanted to tell people which size to use for adults, so assume it would be the one larger then the size you use? Or are there 2 sizes above the one you use? Can you fill us in, thanks.

As always Frank, many thanks for your thoughtful donation and your continued support and friendship.

Did you notice, we've added additional states to our list of places where our wonderful donators live. Scroll down and check out the map. Is your state noted? If not, please check the lists here on the blog to see if I have the state you're from...if not, please sing out. Trying to get everything documented. Wouldn't it be wonderful to have every state represented with a big hearted knitter or crochter or loomer!

TIP: Please remember to leave tails and tuck them in vs knotting and cutting. Thanks.

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!


  1. 60?!?!?! WOW!!! Way to go Frank!!!! What an amazing donation.

  2. Right you are Nikki, that's why I named Dear Frank the Luscious Loomer.

  3. OMG. 60. That brought tears to my eyes. One time, I donated 30 hats to a school and I had to enlist friends to help, so I KNOW what a huge amount of work and time went into this donation. Frank - you are my hero.

  4. Yea Frank! The mighty supplier of hats!

  5. Forgot to ask Sandy: when will we know what to make in November, hmmmm? Waiting on oins and needles.

  6. Frank uses the loom with 36 pegs for these hats. We have given this size hat to adults and they will fit adults. Frank thanks all of you for your kind comments on his hats. He has been loom knitting hats for about 4 years now and it keeps him busy in his retirement years.

  7. Frank, you are amazing! I had an uncle who crocheted afghans for many years when he retired. Let's hear it for men who understand how to create with yarn, rather than just sitting around "spinning yarns," if you know what I mean!

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?
