Donations from Michigan

Thank you Sue S from Michigan for this thoughtful knitted donation for Ohio's homeless.  Hats, scarves, and personal care.......all needed items.  I really love the pretty green tweedy color, very very nice.  We so appreciate your on going support here on Bridge and Beyond.  Thank you for helping us help others.  Together we all make such a wonderful team.

2014 Donations:
Hats: 39+1=40
Scarves: 41+5=46
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

Please remember to avoid using white, beige, light tan, and colors that will easily show the dirt; as well as open lacy stitches.  Unsure if your stitches are too open?


If you can easily see through your item, it's too lacy.  If when you pick it up you can easily put your fingers through your stitches......like above it's too lacy.  I love lacy, it's pretty and soft; but we're in need of sturdy warmth.  If you're using triple crochets please consider using doubles instead.  If you're using doubles and your stitches are still pretty open, switch to a smaller hook to tighten things up or amend your work to use more single crochets.  We all have different gauges so we must assess our work and make adjustments.  

**Stay tuned folks for donations from: Sandy R,   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.

  5. Thank you everyone for the nice comments. The green scarf is Red Heart Super Saver, Frosty Green Fleck. I did buy it a while ago on clearance. It just spoke to me when I saw it in the store. I am glad you liked it also. It was warmer today in MI. Got up in the mid 20's. Yesterday morn when I went to work, it was -10. This morning was 11. Is it finally going to get warm?

  6. Great donation! I LOVE the soft looking red scarf and the bright blue hat. I believe I used that same green yarn for scarves and donated them in the past.

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?
