Homeless are Aided by Helping Hands

  Many hands make the work light.  I think that's the way I remember the quote?  New helping hands are always heart warming.  Here are 6 hats, 2 scarves, and 12 pairs of socks from 2 new pairs of helping hands, Dorna C and Casey B.  These ladies are in a church group together and have joined forces to warm those in need.  They've helped by knitting and crocheting, and they've helped by spreading the news to others in their church group.

Thank you ladies, and welcome...we're always thrilled to have more helping hands.  We hope to see you here often on Bridge and Beyond.

**Remember folks, for the time being I am done collecting squares.  I need to make some room and will put out a call for more squares after getting more afghans assembled.  Until then, please hold mailing your 8 inch squares.  And if you're making and storing them, please please, remember to work in your tails as you go (except for the final one).  Do not tie a knot and cut when changing yarn...when you do that they NEVER hold together.**

**I will continue to add numbers to the years totals after Dec 31st, so all donations received by years end will be counted in the year they are received.  Since each donation is a day, they will be some over flow into January.  Thus year end numbers won't be finalized until then.*

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!

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?
