Today's the last month of July, so I thought I show you were we are today with where we at this time last year.  I've included the 8 primary things we knit, crochet, and donate which doesn't include all the personal care items, headbands, poncho's, gators and those types of things.  The good news is of the 8 items you can see we've been able to donate more this year then last for 5 of the 8 items.  We're only behind of last years mark, at this time in the year on 3 items, Hats, Rain Poncho's, and Mittens.  Rain Poncho's is hardly worth mentioning, because we're in good shape there.

MITTENS, and hats were in need of beefing up, so if you're undecided about what you'd like to knit or crochet, please direct your attention there.  We have extensive information regarding sizing for hats in the hat tab, along with some patterns.  Though less information, we also have a mitten tab with available information and patterns you might like to use.

Please remember for both hats and mittens, to label your items with the size you made.  Please also pair your mittens by attaching them together.  If you are one who doesn't necessarily use a hat pattern, please take time to measure it using the various charts available and label with the size.

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.

  4. Thanks Tristi, Dorothy, and Sally for the visit and your comments. They truly are appreciated.

    I like to try and keep people informed Tristi, and nudge folks about what to make Dorothy, and Sally pile as much as you can in that box...cheaper postage that way.

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?
