Shopping for Socks

Many thanks, Sue F and Sherry. Both ladies sent checks awhile back to help me with my sock shopping excursions. Putting the 3 of us together I was able to pick up these nice heavy socks the other day, notice the bonus! Each package normally has 6 pairs of socks, but they had a special for a 7th pair of socks free. AND, they were on sale at Kohl's so I was able to buy a 3rd package...sweet, 21 pairs of warmer dryer feet. Appreciate your help ladies. This is another example of what we do as a team. The money we each put in goes farther when we three pool our money...Thank you all.

What, when did you donate? Could yours be one of the unidentified donations?

Take a look at the 3 lists of helping hands here on the blog, the list of those who donate who have blogs, the list of those who have a facebook, RAV, Hive, Crochetville page who donate, and the list of those who donate who don't blog or have profile pages (and or haven't sent them to me). Are you listed? If so, is there a state listed next to your name? If not, please leave a comment telling me what state your from so it can be added to the map. We want you and your state represented. Scroll to the bottom of the blog, take a look at the map. Would love to add to it. Look at the percentage, maybe we can grow it? Did you not find your name on any of the 3 lists, but you've donated? PLEASE take a look at the 4th list...the unidentified donations list. Click on the list and you'll see the blog post where items were received without notes, without my being able to match to someone who blogs, or belongs to one of the groups I do, or someone in my emails. Please help us complete these lists. Maybe, you have a facebook page I don't have listed? Send me your link, maybe you've started blogging after you donated, let's get it added.

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. Hi Sandy:
    My english is "little" and
    some time I can't find the words to tell all I want. I visit the blog and leave without comments, and I fill bad. Some time I use goggle translate, and some times my husband help me, and some time I wrote in spanish.
    But I'm going to try and do my best.

    Thank you Sue and Sherry.

  2. Damaris, your English is far better then my Spanish. Please don't feel bad. I love having you visit.

  3. Sue, Sherry, and Sandy: The socks are wonderful! More "happy feet."

    Damaris: Don't worry; sometimes our English isn't so great either and as Sandy said, "your English is far better than our Spanish," and that is absolutely true! Keep the comments coming!

  4. Thank you very much, both of you make my day!!!!!
    Sandy, the bird pictute in my blog is a card to congratulete all womens because today is the United Nation INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY.

    Congratulation Sandy and all ladies for your big heart to help this cause.

  5. Thanks Damaris, I thought that might be it...awesome, sharing the day with women everywhere...making the most of sameness not our difference.

  6. I am so thankful you get some private cash donations to help getting the socks. They are much needed. Thank you Sue and Sherry.

    Damaris, don't worry about you english. You come across well. I always wished I could speak spanish.

  7. All those socks will be keeping lots of feet happy & warm.

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?
