Buckeye's Helping Each Other

Thank you fellow Ohioan, Patricia C for this thoughtful crocheted donation of hats and scarves.  Your thoughtfulness helps gives people hope, as well as physically warms them.  Both the hope and the physical warm is needed, and very much appreciated.  Please keep up the good work, and know you're making an important difference in people's lives.

2014 Donations:
Hats: 32+7=39
Scarves: 38+3=41
Socks: 4
Afghans: 8
Slippers: 10
Rain Ponchos: 
Mitten: 4
Cotton Washcloths: 19
Shawls, Sweaters, Vests, Poncho's, Skirts etc. : 
Misc. Items: include personal care, headbands, hand-warmers, cowls/gators/neckwarners and all meal prep related items, Dolls, associated items, stuffed/crocheted/knitted toys... etc aren't tabulated

**Thinking about making a hat?  Here's the tab for hats with all the necessary information you need to know about sizes, colors, and fibers.  Click HERE.  Notice all the tabs across the top of the blog?  

Please remember what fibers to avoid folks as you knit and crochet your special donations.  The only thing cotton fiber should be used for is the cotton washcloths.  Cotton isn't warm enough or durable enough for a hat, scarf and other items.  Wool and suede should also be avoided.  Washable wool however is wonderful!  Acrylic of course works for everything.  If you have questions about something, please check with me by using the contact form here on the blog, leaving a comment here on the blog, or emailing me at sandycrochet@gmail.com.

**Stay tuned folks for donations from: Sandy R,  SSeger,  Karen J, and Barbara F**

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.

  1. These are really beautiful Patricia. Thank you so much for helping the homeless and for making such nice manly looking items in your gift. We often forget the men and they are surviving in the cold somehow and need all the help they can get. We have made it to the middle of Feb. Spring is definitely within site ,although I am afraid we have many cold nights ahead. Thank you for your help.GOOD JOB

  3. Thanks so much for this wonderful donation Patricia! I especially like the camo set. I think I need to try some camo yarn myself as I have never used it and I like the way it looks. Marj is right.....the men folk will like these manly colors! Thanks so much for using your time and talent to help the homeless and working poor! Keep your hook flying!

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?
