Donating Mittens and Hats Perfect for Homeless

Thank you Sally B from New Jersey for these awesome knitted hats and mittens.  And double thanks for nicely tagging each item with the size.  You ROCK!  Sally has been a long time supporter here on Bridge and Beyond, not only with her skillful hands; but her continued visits and supportive comments.  Thank you Sally for all you do, it is truly appreciated.

We here in Ohio love that you've joined us all the way from New Jersey.  As always my friend, please please keep up the good work!

Hats: 29+3=32
Scarves: 38
Socks: 4
Afghans: 8
Slippers: 10
Rain Ponchos: 
Mitten: 1+3=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 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, 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.

Feel like you are a friend even though I dont know a thing about you except that you are also a friend of the homelss in OHio. This is truly a beautiful donation. Thank you for being my friend and theirs too. This will be so appreciated by the bridge people as you know, and also by anyone else who may receive this gift. GOOD JOB.

  2. Nice donation Sally! Glad you are a long time supporter of this great group. I like the stripped mittens.

  3. Very nice hats and mittens. Thank you for your continued support of Ohio's homeless.

  4. Thank you all for the nice comments and for cheering me on! Yes Marj.....it is me.....Sally from NJ. Funny thing I have been trying to recruit from among my knitting friends and with my next donation another Sally from NJ will be participating. Only she will be Sally L. and I am Sally B.
    Well we have a regular heat wave going on here. It is 24 degrees! Only on Thursday we are supposed to get another 9 inches of snow! I truly think we are all sick and tired of the white stuff and snow has become the new "4 letter word". UGH!!! Stay warm my friends and keep your hooks and needles 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?
