Sharing Stories About Knitting and Crocheting

We've been enjoying reading stories from some of you who donate your knitting and crocheting for Ohio's Homeless and others in need.  If you've missed any, here's a chance to catch up on the fun, cute, and sweet stories about how folks learned their craft.

My story about Knitting and Crocheting is Here.

Sandie P's crochet story is HERE

Marjorie M's story is HERE

Tristi's story is HERE

Sue F's story is HERE

Sorry this picture is so blurry folks, but I took it from my yard as the sunset was waning using the zoom as far as it would go on my camera.  I thought the cross against the soon to be night sky was cool.  This is far enough from my house you couldn't through a ball that far, it's farther then a football field and is a block away and a street over to give you a feel.  It's not a scene we see often either, as the trees really fill in it's blocked out.

Where's your story?  I know you all have one.  Who taught you to knit or crochet?  How old were you?  Why did you learn?  We want details.  Send them my way via email sandycrochet at gmail.com and I'll share it so we can all enjoy it.

**There's still time left in June to focus on slippers, but for those who like to look ahead.  Mittens will be our focus for July.  I've added a few months to our working calendar, please check it out.  Some of you may remember we lost our whole page of mitten information and patterns.  Please send me links and or patterns (that don't break copyright issues) so we can rebuild our mitten page.**

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?
