Cotton WashCloths Always Need at Family Shelters

Thank you Linda J for these crocheted cotton washcloths.  These are always a bit hit at all the family shelters we deliver our donations to.  Nice variety in size and designs.  People use them as washcloths, and as dishcloths.  They're used when people first come into the shelters and need so much, and they're used in moving out packages to aid them setting up housekeeping when they transition from shelter to permanent housing.

Please keep up the good work, Linda.

    GOOD JOB LINDA. Much needed items and can be used in so many different ways. I have said before how much I love these washclothes and dish clothes. Thank you.

  2. Nice job Linda! Beautiful donation.

  3. I really like the yellow ones with the circle in the center. I am trying to teach myself to crochet since I think it will go faster than knitting, but I just can't get the hang of it!

  4. Thank you Marj, Wendy, and Brista for the visits and nice supportive comments. You're sweet to help this way. Brista, have you tried looking for a u-tube video...sometimes seeing it, vs just reading about it can be helpful.

    I signed up for a beginner crochet class with my sister who knits. She wants to learn crochet and since i was self taught i thought i might relearn the right way. Alot of schools give classes that are helpful. also Micheals and Joannes craft stores. I am like you. need to see it rather then read it. Good luck, Brista

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?
