Donations from California aid Ohio's Cold Homeless

Thank you Denise M from California, our newest pair of helping hands.  We're thrilled to have you join us in keeping Ohio's homeless warmer.  Denise has crocheted hats, scarves (some mobius/infinity style), hand warmers (fingerless gloves) and felted slippers.  Very nice donation that will help many people.  

The picture is a bit dark, sometimes trying to get good light down in the basement (my new work space area) can be a challenge.  I did edit the picture a bit on the computer, and if you click to enlarge it helps.

Look forward to seeing you here often on Bridge and Beyond, Denise.  

2014 Donations:
Hats: 25+4=29
Scarves: 28+10=38
Socks: 4
Afghans: 8
Slippers: 8+2=10
Rain Ponchos: 
Mitten: 1
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 scarf?  Here's the tab for scarves 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, Patricia C, Sally, 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. WELCOME DENISE. Really a beautiful donation and so many good things. Many lucky people will receive your help. We are freezing here in Minnesota we are at 10 below and it is noon. Homeless people who are not finding refuge from this terrible winter thank you for all you did to try to help. Again welcome to B&B and thank you. GOOD JOB.

  2. Thank you and welcome Denise. Love your donation and many people will be warmer because of you!

  3. Welcome Denise! So glad you found our awesome little group! Thanks so much for your terrific donation! I love your manly colors! Even if they aren't sizes for men (I can't tell from the pic) some boys will be very happy! You have done a great job and I hope we see you here lots on B&B. 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?
