A Mother and Daughter Donation

Thank you Jennifer S for your continued support and thank you for recruiting your mother to help us here on Bridge and Beyond. You mentioned she crochets, so am looking forward to seeing her work in the future.

The mother and daughter team here of Jennifer and Judy have donated scarves, hats, and mittens! Many thanks for your thoughtful donation ladies. The scarves are all crocheted and will surely keep some of the men warm.

Hey Jennifer where's your Mom, Judy from? Like to get that added to our list.

Folks, please check out the map. I love seeing it grow as we add new states to it. But, I need your help in this effort. Please look at all 3 lists here on Bridge. Those that blog, those with Facebook and or Rav profile pages, and those without. Find your name...is there a state listed with your name? If not, you're not on the map. Please leave a comment indicating what state you're from so I can add it to the the list and map if it's not already there. Also, please indicate your last initial if it's not listed. As we grow, we're getting multiple people with the same name and I'm having a hard time keeping track of who everyone is. We have Sandy (me) and two Sandie's one in Florida and one in Louisiana. We have several others with the same or similar names too and it would be helpful to know if I've duplicated things like Angie/Angela.

2011 Donations:

Scarves 425+3=428
Hats918+8=926
Mittens 247+8=253
Socks 322
Squares 636
Rain Ponchos 216
Cotton Washcloths 339
Sweaters/Poncho's 10
Slippers 110
Afghans 46 (2 sent to our friends at Pine Street)
Misc Items I've not counted misc items like all the personal care items, the neck warmers, head bands, shawl, hot packs, or yarn etc.

December focuses on squares, remember squares should be made of washable yarn, all tails should be worked in as you go. Please don't leave tails when you change yarn ( that's true of any item you make). It truly slows down things at my end to tuck them in after the fact, and they tuck far better if you crochet or knit them in as you go. The only tail that should be visible is the very last one. Also, please please do not tie a knot and cut -- those squares always come undone and can't be used. Remember too, squares should measure no smaller then 7 inches and no larger then 10 inches. Avoid white. If you're squares don't fall into these guidelines, please contact me before mailing, 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. Jennifer and Judy, thanks so much for this thoughtful donation. Your scarves look so nice and cozy, plus the colors look great for some lucky guy! I am sure the hats and gloves are going to be making some folks very happy this cold winter season. Keep your hooks flying!

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?
