Hats, Scarves, Slippers and More to Aid Cold Homeless

Thank you Sheelagh S for this beautiful stained glass window style afghan.  Please click to enlarge folks so you can see the details.  Not only is it colorful, but it has nice texture, dimension to it.  Sheelagh found this pattern in "50 Sensational Crochet Afghans & Throw" in case any of you want to give it a go.    This wonderful lapghan will surely put a smile on someone's face while it keeps them warm.  Awesome work Sheelagh!

Sheelagh has been very busy!  She's crocheted and donated slippers, hats, and a poncho in addition to the lovely lapghan above.  I had to stand back to get everything in the photo soooooooooo

wanted you to see the detail in the poncho, I've cropped it for you.  Isn't this a wonderful design!  It's nice and thick will be very warm for the lucky recipient.  Love the colors as well.
She made some keyhold scarves also, indicating she didn't quite have enough yarn to make full length scarves.  What an awesome idea!  I wanted to share a close up.  If you've not seen this style scarf before it has a slit, something like a button hold (only larger), where the scarf slides into itself which compensates nicely when it might otherwise be too short to wrap around and secure.  Great idea.

People always enjoy looking at new or different patterns, so am including the pattern she used for her hats in case any of you are looking for a new pattern.  Click HERE.  I'll be adding this to our hat tab across the top of the blog.  It's a well written pattern, sized wonderfully, is stretchy which makes it fit more heads, and is nice and warm with tight closed stitches...AND it has a brim!  Awesome Pattern, thanks for sharing this.

Please keep up the good work Sheelagh.

It's March, and that means our focus is Men.  Things needed for men, darks, solids, sturdy be that hats, scarves, mittens, or slippers.  This winter is far from over.  Though I am excited it's staying light a bit later; the temps are still frigid and as the writing of this scheduled post, I managed one token day without snow in my yard .......short lived reprieve, as it snowed again and next comes the freezing rain.

    Sheelagh, your work is fantastic, You should be working in a yarn shop somewhere selling your beautiful items. Thank you for donating them to the Ohio Homeless. They are out of this world, and I am sorry but you are making the rest of us jealous with your talent. Thank you so much for your kind heart and beautiful gifts. You are truly appreciated.

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?
