Slippers, Hats, Scarves, and More

 Thank you Lori R from Ohio for this wonderful and warm donation of scarves, slippers, and hats.  Special thanks for pairing and tagging the slippers with size.  That is most appreciated.  Look at the variety of colors and size folks!  These slippers are made, I believe with double thickness yarn which is always such a good idea to make slippers sturdy and warm.
 Oh these pretty bright colored crocheted cotton wash cloths make me think of Spring.  I really need to think Spring too, it's been so dark and wintering blah here of late.  Beautiful made, and nicely sized for adults.  Thank you Lori!  Please keep up the good work.

**We'll soon be at the end of February, hard to believe how fast time flies by.  The focus for both January and February was slippers.  Just because the focus on feet with slippers and socks comes to an end soon; doesn't mean you can't still make slippers and send socks.  Both items are always needed and always appreciated.  Our monthly focus is just to nudge specific items needed or give you an idea if you're not sure what you want to make.

March will focus on afghans and rain poncho's.  In addition to the afghan I assemble (or get help assembling) from your donated squares you can knit and or crochet completed afghans.  You can also make a quilt.  Guideline for colors and size etc can be found in the

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?
