Peach Tree State Crochet Keeps Ohio's Homeless Warm


Take a good look folks at this wonderful donation from our good friend and supporter, Diana K from Georgia.  Hats, Scarves, and an afghan.  In order to get it all on the table to photograph you may not be able to see everything well...but please click to enlarge so you can see things in detail.  Nice solid colors, red, green, and blue....though I know it looks sorta purple on my computer, it's good old blue folks.  Wish I understood why blue's and purple's don't often come through well in pictures here on the net?

The scarves are very nicely sized for adults, both men and women; nice and wide and long enough to wrap up in.  Have gotten some pretty small scarves lately folks, so please recheck the scarf tab for the appropriate sizing.  Scarves should be no narrower then 4 inches wide and no shorter then 4.5 feet long for children, obviously longer for women and longer still for men.  I generally make scarves as tall if not taller then the person so they can be doubled up for warmth.  Teens should be as large as adults.

The ghan is red and green, a good ripple and we all love ripples.  Stay tuned for a separate picture of it on down the road  when I can lay it out in a more appropriate location.  Diana also included some personal care items (soap).

Thank you, please keep up the good work of keeping Ohioan's warm from Peach Tree State.

  2. Wonderful donation Diana! I like the pattern you used for the scarves. Got up to 11 today here in MI! It was 1 when I went to work this morning. Cold wind all day. The homeless sure need the warm items this winter.

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?
