Thank you Annemarie in New York for this donation. It's already been hand delivered for our Project "Welcome Home".

blue ripple ghanAnother fabulous donation for our families again through Project "Welcome Home". Please click to see details in these special hand crochet afghans from Annemarie. This is perfect for families to snuggle under as they make their transition from the family shelter into more permanent housing. A wonderful house warming gift for sure!
hats, scarves, mittens, sweater for homelessCan you see how busy our friend Annemarie's been! 2 scarves, 3 hats, 2 pairs of mittens, and an adorable sweater. All beautifully made, all made with love and thoughtfulness. Annemarie.....love love love the sweater. What pattern did you use? Can you share it? My quess is this would be sized right for a 8 yr old? Maybe older? Just eye balling it, as they say. Would love to know what size you made so I can tag it that way.

Many thanks for your skillful hands. Keep up the good work!!

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. WOW, Annemarie! You are super woman and your hook HAS been flying!Your work is beautiful! Thanks so much for this wonderful donation! It is truly IMPRESSIVE!

  2. The sweater is called "Lacy Sweater" and can be found at www.FreePatterns.com. I made it in a small. Not sure what number size it would be.

  3. Very beautiful work AnneMarie. Can you tell me the height and width of the brown shades afghan? I think I may be able to quickly do something like that but no bigger.

  4. I believe the brown afghan was about 30x36. It didn't take long to make. I kept going until I ran out of yarn.

  5. All the things you've made are really pretty, Annemarie! You inspire us!

  6. Your work is beautiful as always. You are my hero.

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?
