**Do you think it's possible for us to reach 500 scarves this calendar year? That popped into my head as I was updating our numbers. How fabulous that would be. Scarves for men, women, and children (not the wee ones...school age and up).**

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. AWESOME donation, Yvonne! Love the scarf! The pattern looks great! The hat looks nice and cozy too and really like the colors you chose. Keep those needles flying! You do great work!

  2. Thanks for the kind comments. The scarf pattern is from an old Country Woman magazine, I believe. Cast on 32 stitches and knit however many rows you like.(I think I did 20). Then knit 4 rows of K2,P2. Then knit 20 more rows and then 4 rows of K2,P2. Continue with the pattern until you have the length you want. You can add fringe if you would like. Hope that's understandable.

  3. Thanks so much for sharing your pattern, Yvonne!

  4. Thanks, I like the scarf too. And black socks! I wondered if grey or black would be better than white. I usually get grey or grey bottomed socks.

  5. Yvonne, I've been away for a few days so haven't commented sooner, but love your donation. It's so cold here, I can attest to the need for warm socks - great addition to your skillful handiwork.

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?
