Two Boxes of Donations


Thank you Sue F for this awesome donation.  Wow, 2 boxes of donated goodies!  Sue knitted 3 pairs of fabulous slippers/booties.  Sue would love to post the pattern you use for these booties...so nice and warm.  She also knitted and crocheted 10 cotton washcloths in a variety of sizes, colors and styles (neat mix of stitches), and a fun and very cheery afghan.  Her afghan is made in the traditional corner to corner...Grandma's Favorite Dishcloth pattern.  She's then joined 6 large squares...very cool idea.

She's also forwarded some yarn, fun novelty yarn that will probably find it's way into another one of our give aways/contest since we don't use novelty yarns for our donations.  Stay tuned, we always have a contest of some sort during the summer months.

Thank you Sue for your thoughtful donation, please keep up the good work!

Added a new slipper pattern yesterday to the slipper tab from our good friend Tristi.  Please check it out.  How can you turn down something with the title of EASY Double Strand Slippers.  She says they go fast too.  What a plus fast and easy!  Thank you Trisit.

  1. Sue- I can see you have been one busy girl and that your hook and needles have been flying! I love your Afghan.......such a creative idea to join six of those corner to corner blocks! I REALLY LOVE those slipper booties and REALLY HOPE you will pass along the pattern! I'd like to give it a try!

    THANKS SUE! Thank you for the variety of pieces for the homeless. I am sure they will all be a welcome gift for someone in need. Glad to see someone is able to make cute slippers. I think they are a little beyond my abilities, but am so happy to see that some of you are that talented.GOOD JOB.

  3. Thanks everyone. I don't like joining squares so I made big ones in order to only have to join a few.

    The slipper pattern is on the blog here under the slippers tab. It's the one that says "Our friend James found this pattern on Rav." Once you go through the pattern once it's easy to get the hang of it. Hope you'll all give them a try!

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?
