Crocheted Donations from West Virginia Help Ohio's Homeless

 Thank you Joanne from West Virginia for this thoughtful donation of crocheted and knitted hats, and scarves, and hooded scarf.  Shoot our friend Sandie P found the name for those a few posts back and I've forgotten what they're called.  Will scroll back and find it.
Scottie...found it.  Thank you Joanne for your thoughtful donation.  You can see there are a couple of matching sets of hats and scarves. 

As I post this we're having another rainy day here in Central Ohio, that makes it cool at night folks, even now.....even though there's a bit left in the month of August.  Please keep your hooks and needles flying.

Please remember folks, open lacy stitches aren't warm, and tend not to hold up well in the cold wet weather here in Ohio.  Stitches should be close together, please avoid using stitches your fingers can easily poke through and or you can see through.  Broom stick lace, mile a minute type patterns etc don't meet the needs of those we serve.

*Folks please remember not to knot and cut with knitted or crocheted items.  Knots are always the weakest link in any garment or project.  Always leave tails when changing colors or adding yarn and work in your tails to avoid un-raveling.**

Hats: 532+6=538
Scarves: 293+7=300

Reminder to everyone to please avoid using pastels, white, and beige.  Dark colors are best for men, women, and children.  Dark colors work for everyone and help with not showing the dirt as easily

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.

  3. What a terrific donation Joanne! Thank you so much! Those items from your hook not only will keep those less fortunate warmer but will warm their hearts as well knowing someone took the time to create something useful just for them! Thanks so much for having a big heart for the homeless in Ohio! Keep your hook 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?
