Knitting and Crocheting to Help Homeless

Thank you Marie P from Tennessee for this thoughtful donation.  Not a good picture at all, darn it folks.  Marie's has donated some personal care items, a scarf, hat, and 3 pairs of socks.  The contrast in the black and orange seem to make it hard to see...that and it was a very dark gloomy day when I took the picture; not that we've many that haven't been.  

Thank you Marie for tagging the hat with size, I really appreciate that and know the volunteers at the shelters do too.

**Wonder what to make?  Check the tabs across the top of the blog, hats, scarves, mittens, slippers etc. each item we collect has it's own tab with necessary information about size, color, and fiber as well as patterns you might enjoy using.  There's a tab for knitted and crocheted cotton washcloths, and afghans.  If you have a question you don't find the answer to in those tabs, please leave a comment, or use the contact form in the right side bar, or email me at sandycrochet@gmail.com

    Thanks Marie. Love the combination of the orange and gray. Definitely a lovely donation, and as Sally said someone is going to be nice and warm. The days are definitely improving although I hear there is another storm crossing the country. This has got to end soon. Beautiful weather here, in that we are melting stuff like crazy Always a good sign. Again Marie, Thank you for helping the Ohio Homeless.. GOOD JOB.

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?
