Donations Delivered in Person

 Look at these awesome crocheted slippers, Tristi K donated.  Remember you can always click pictures to make them larger to see more details etc.  Slippers all made with double strands of yarn so nice and thick and warm and sturdy.  The very best combination.  I LOVE slippers made with the double yarn, believe they really hold up and serve our purposes.  She's crocheted lots of different sizes, in lots of different colors.  AND...they are all nicely paired with fabulous tags indicating size.  Thank you Tristi.  Tristi is a new pair of helping hands, we're thrilled to have you join us.
She's also crocheted hats, cotton washcloths and a scarf.  Such a nice donation.  Again thanks for labeling the hats with size.  It's truly appreciated.  Tristi is local and so we were able to meet face to face when she passed this donation onto me.  I love getting to meet some of you good folks.  It's a real bonus.  We enjoyed a cup of tea and look forward to getting together again.  (speaking about tea, here's a post all you tea lovers should see)

She's also agreed to help me with assembling an afghan.  This afghan, titled Retro was designed some time back and has been waiting to be assembled.  I tend to assemble based on what yarn colors I have on hand.  I love the mix of colors of brown and turquoise and it reminds of the 50's kitchen colors.  Some squares are knitted, some are crocheted and they are a variety of sizes.  I used to accept a variety of sizes, but in order to get things done quicker I now accept 8 inch squares only....at designated times.  I'll not be calling for squares for some time to come, as I still have plenty on hand to work with.  PLEASE check the working calendar to determine when squares are to be mailed next.

In the meantime, do stay tuned to see the finished ghan.  This was my vision when I laid the squares out, she may have another.  Thank you Tristi for your help.

Please avoid novelty yarns, suede and all non washable fibers.
Please avoid the white, off-white, beige.
Please never tie a knot and cut.  Always work in tails to keep items from unraveling, and always tuck in all tails (don't forget the insides of hats etc.)
Please avoid spraying items with perfumes, air-freshners.  Launder instead.
Always include a note with your donations that has your name and your email addy.
Please make sure your donations are free of pet hair.
Please avoid stitches they are open/lacy.  We need sturdy warm stitches.
Please label hats, mittens, and slippers with size.

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?
