Thank you for your thoughtful donation of hats (17), slippers (38) and mittens (1). I'm particularly thrilled to get that number of slippers from. Awesome. All the folks, men, women, and children use those at the various Family Shelters.

Look at the great variety of sizes and colors Rose made. Special thanks too Rose for pairing up and joining your slippers.......such a nice time saver for me. Can you tell us what pattern you used?

  1. Welcome Rose M! What a wonderful donation. Love all the slippers that you made. You will be keeping lots of people warm this winter.

  2. Wow. That's a lot of slippers. How great. I'd be interested in the pattern too.

  3. Thank you ! I used Teresa Richardson's "adult slippers" pattern and tutorial on You tube. I tweeked it a little and made them a little higher around the ankle. Enjoy!


  4. Thanks Rose for the follow up on the pattern. When I looked at your note in the email thought I saw a link, but it apparently didn't come through in your comment. Shoot, think I deleted email knowing it would be here, will see if I can find it to add to the blog post and slipper tab.

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?
