Donating Colorful Knitted Hats off the Loom

Thank you Sandie from Florida!  Hats and hats and hats!  Sandie has knitted these hats of many colors on her loom.  Love it when our friends in sunshine states make us nice warm goodies for our cold homeless here in Ohio.  Lots of heads will be warmed because of this thoughtful donation.  18 heads, as a matter of fact will be warmer.  Many thanks Sandie and please keep up the good work.

Folks if you missed yesterday's cute video about yarn and our yarn stashes...please scroll back and have a look.  It's quite humerus.

You all may have noticed it's been awhile since we've had a post every day, that's because donations are down.  Typically they do fall off during the summer months and I try to keep things active with other information here; but even with that this summer we had fairly large gaps of no new posts.  Hoping with Labor Day Weekend here, which signals for most of us back to school, end of summer, fall and football; that people will welcome yarn back into their daily activities.

I'd like to push once again for people to visit, to read, and to COMMENT.  Those are all things you can do even when time is short to knit or crochet.  It does indeed help the blog and it's placement.  If you don't comment, we don't know that you've visited, or read new information.  You do not need to be a blogger to comment.  You do not need to be computer savvy to leave a comment.  It's fast and it's easy.  PLEASE, take time to read the tabs of the items you're making so the items you make and donate comply with the guidelines.

Happy Labor Day one and all, if you're traveling be safe

  1. Love all the colors in the hats!
    Lots of warm heads this winter!

  2. What a lovely donation Sandie. Guess I missed yesterdays comments. I did get to UPS however and get a box on the way that should arrive on Wednesday.It has been so terribly hot here for the past week that I didnt get out to do it earlier. Will try to get back into the groove now that fall is here.Again, beautiful donation Sandie. GOOD JOB.

  3. Thanks for the compliments, folks. I was a little apprehensive about sending such bright colors, but beter warm than dull, I guess! I LOVE that yarn video!! You can include quilting fabric for me as well. If "she who dies with the biggest stash wins", well, I'm getting to at least the top ten. Happy days -- Sandie in soooo hot Floria

  4. I am commenting as you requested people to do. I am I think your newest member who knows crochet Sandie petit.
    I going to try hard to make something for you and your very worthy cause..

    The person of Florida really did a nice job with those hats

    I have some yellow and lime green cotton yarn. Would either color be good for a wash cloth. I have to buy some to use either color. Which do you feel is best color.

    Take care. Have a nice Labor Day weekend.

  5. Looks like we need to get started knitting/crocheting..to get the posts to start rolling again..look for a box to be mailed this week from me :)

  6. LOVE your colors Sandie! Super job! I am sure those bright colors will not only keep heads warmer but put a smile on their faces as well.. Keep your loom flying Sandie!

  7. What a great bunch of hats! I have some looms but have never used them. These make me want to try it!

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?
