Signature Donations for the Homeless

Thank you RoseMarie for your thoughtful donation and your on going support of Bridge and Beyond.  RoseMarie has crocheted and donated a matching hat and scarf set with her signature flower once again.  I know you all know immediately who's donation it is when I post a picture of something she's made.  LOVE this color combination RoseMarie, in fact it might be my favorite of your donations.  She's also crocheted a handband with a decoration as well.

Like Diana K in yesterday's post, there will be additional pictures and posts to show you the rest of RoseMarie's donation.  I often crowd as much as possible into a picture and believe you can see things better if I reduce the number of items in a photo.  So, to improve upon the photo's and to increase the number of blogs posts, since donations are down I'll be breaking things up a bit.  So, please keep checking in folks and don't be shy, when you visit, PLEASE leave a comment so we now you were here.  Visits and comments help the blog's placements, as do the number of blog posts.

Looking back to this time last year folks (on September 16th), 2013 we had knitted and crocheted and donated 377 scarves.  To date we're at 312, 65 short of last years mark.  Wondering what to make next?  How about a scarf?  Please, PLEASE click HERE for the scarf tab and read all the information about what size, what colors, what fibers to use as well as what to avoid.

Hats: 568+1=569
Scarves: 311+1=312

*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.**

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. Love it RoseMarie. I like the dark blue. Not quite navy but just as good. I am always impressed with your gifts and am sure the people who receive them are too.
    Starting to get the house ready for winter, and am concerned that all of us are not able to do the same. Lets all get together and provide the homeless with what they need to protect themselves from the cold. Thanks again Rosemarie you definitely do your share. GOD BLESS THE 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?
