Donations from The Golden Gate Bridge State

Wave hello to our good friend James folks. He knits so beautifully and has been such a long time supporter of us here at Bridge and Beyond. Thank you James for your thoughtful donation, and for your on going support.......all the way from California, The Golden Gate Bridge State. We sure appreciate it.

James knitted 4 hats, a cute pair of slippers, 4 pairs of mittens and a darling little mitered square afghan. The afghan will be so appreciated by some little boy. Hey Jim, I loved how a couple of cotton washcloths came out using the mitered square method. How did you figure out how many to cast on? Did you wing it, or have a pattern?

  1. Love the afghan James. What a nice donation you sent all the way from CA.

  2. Thanks! The cotton washcloths are just a cast on of 3 sts, then you do the increases on either side of the center st. This pattern is so easy I was able to teach my mother to do it. ^.~

  3. Thank you all. I used Teresa Richardson's "adult slipper' pattern and her tutorial on You Tube.
    This is the written pattern.

    This is her You tube tutorial

    I tweeked it a little here and there but primarily used the pattern. Enjoy !

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?
