Donating Loomed Hats

 Thank you Cassy K from The Peach Tree State, Georgia for your donation of these 10 knitted (loomed) hats.  Nice variety in color and size Cassy.  And special thanks for tagging your hats with the size, that is much appreciated.

Cassy is our newest pair of helping hands.  We're thrilled to have you join us and hope to see you here often on Bridge and Beyond.  Please keep up the good work.

*Please remember to keep your donations free of pet hair.   Lint rollers work fairly well to remove small amounts, but those who's furry friends like to lay on their hand crafted items should launder their donations before mailing them.  It really delays things and makes my allergies flair when I have to launder donations before being able to distribute them.*

2013 Donation Totals:
Hats:  221+10=231
Scarves: 110
Afghans: 4
Slippers: 77
Rain Ponchos:2
Mittens: 15
Cotton Wash Clothes: 134
Shawls, Sweaters, Vests, Poncho's: 4
Misc. Items: include personal care, headbands, handwarmers, cowls/gators and all meal prep related items,  etc aren't tabulated

All donations regardless of size and number are valued. All donations are appreciated. The Power of One is awesome, and when we work together The Power of One becomes The Power of Many.

    WELCOME CASSY. these are really lovely. so many warm heads. thank you for being so generous. the golden brown ones are my favorite. dont know anything about looming but you make me want to find out. :+)))

  2. Great Job Cassy! Nice looking hats! I love the variegated ones!

  3. Awesome donation. Welcome to the gang Cassy!

  4. Welcome Cassy! Great donation of hats. More warm heads!!

  5. Welcome Cassie! So glad you found us! Thank you so much for your very cozy looking hats! I am fond of the red variegated one as my favorite color is red. I am hoping to try to figure out how to loom. Is ir hard to learn and who taught you? Did you take a class? Hope to see you here lots and keep your loom flying!

  6. Sally, Those look like Knifty Knitter loomed hats, (of course, there are "off brands" of the looms, I know Hobby Lobby has a set of 4 SUPER BRIGHT colored ones) if they are, it is VERY EASY to do. There are many online videos and tutorials out there. You can even make slippers with the smallest loom of the set :-) I have made many of both slippers and hats, I just think my crocheting is faster than I can loom. HTH

  7. Sally did you do spool knitting as a kid? Back in the day we had wooden spools and you could pound 4 nails into the wooden spool and using a diaper pen.......I know showing my age, again. lol Any with looping old loops over new loops on the nails you're actually knitting. The looms are the same.

  8. Thanks everyone, glad to be here and able to help out, all that I can. Yes, these are loomed knitted. It is much easier to me than needle knitting. I actually taught myself, there is a kit that you buy and has all of the instructions.

  9. Tristi, I would love to learn how to make the socks on the smaller looms. I can't seem to figure it out by the instructions. Would greatly appreciate, any help. Thanks

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?
