Knitted and Crocheted Slippers Needed

Can you believe it's December already?  Wow, where does the time go?  December's focus is slippers.  Slippers are needed for men, women, and children.  Please take a look at the slipper tab.......CLICK HERE.  You might enjoy trying one of the slipper patterns there.

Slippers give folks in shelters, even the men who might only be there a night or two the opportunity to put something clean and dry on their feet.  It gives the ability to wash their socks.  Clean dry feet make everyone more comfortable.  Beyond comfort, having dry warm feet also improves health conditions.

Slippers help take off the chill for those living in temporary shelter quarters where heat often isn't as good as it could be.  PLEASE consider using bulky yarn, or double yarn, or making two slippers and put them together for thickness and durability.  PLEASE consider using single crochet or hdc stitches vs double crochet if you're crocheting with regular worsted weight yarn...or even drop down a hook size or two to tighten up the stitches.

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?
