Crochet Hats, Scarves and Slippers for Ohio's Homeless

 Hats, scarves, and slippers in this picture.  Awesome colors.  This marvelous donation is from our friend Diana K.  She and her hook must be battery charged.  She used the chevron (ripple) pattern to create these interesting scarves.  I love how the texture and shape show up so well with all nice solid colors.
And........yet there's more.  More hats and scarves crocheted and donated by Dear Diana.  Please keep up the good work Diana, we so appreciate all your efforts and generosity.

Folks, if you missed the previous post, please scroll back.  A knitted hat pattern was linked, and it was added to the hat tab.  Please check it out.

Scrolling back to this date last year, Sept 21st, 2013 I note we had donated 97 pairs of mittens/gloves which is 33 more then we've to date this year.  If you're one who can knit or crochet mittens, please do.  Cold hands are miserable.  Stay tuned folks, our good friend, RoseMarie is currently working on a pattern variation for fingerless gloves (crocheted) that I'll be posting to the mittens page.  While not full mittens, they would still be welcomed by those living in the shelters.  

2014 DONATIONS:
Hats: 571+5=576
Scarves: 312+6=318

**Reminder to please remove hair (both human and furry friends), odors (from smoke or pets, cooking etc) from your donations.  Since all items require washable fibers, laundering your items before mailing is very helpful.  Laundering not only removes the hair and odors, it softens the fibers and gives a more finished look to all items.**

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.

  1. THANKS DIANA, YOU ARE A BUSY WOMAN AND MUCH APPRECIATED. This is truly a lovely donation and of course this is ONLY half. The first half was as nice and will definitely make a wonderful gift to the people who are struggling to stay warm in the upcoming winter. The first day of fall is already tomorrow evening and we all know what that means. We are having a week of above average temps here in Minnesota next week but it will be over soon and we will be buckling down again for winter. God Bless you for doing what you can to support the Ohio Homeless.

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?
