Crocheting for the Homeless

 Thank you Marjorie M for this awesome donation and for your on going support of the cause here on Bridge and Beyond.  Marjorie has been a faithful supporter for Ohio's homeless and others in need in many ways.  She uses her skillful hands to crochet and donate warm items, she includes lots of much needed and appreciated personal care items.  Additionally she is ever diligent in visiting and supporting the blog with her thoughtful comments and cheering on other big hearted folks who donate.
 Lots of different colored crocheted cotton washcloths, some for the ladies and some for the men.  Perfect!  She's also included warm socks so very much in need.
I attended the Ohio State Footfall game the other day, and can tell you how uncomfortable I was with cold wet feet.  We were out for a good part of the day and feet simply don't dry when it's raining....even though we had rain gear on that doesn't protect ones feet.  Knowing I could get warm and dry later certainly helped.  Our friends living out in the elements don't have the luxury of knowing in a few hours they'll be warm and dry, so socks are ALWAYS a huge plus.

Many thanks Marjorie, please keep up the good work.

*Folks if you notice I rolled the brim down on one hat and up in the other so you can see the versatility of this style hat.*

**Posted a donation yesterday from a Carol C, whom I still very much need to be in contact with, please if you know this person, or are this person and are reading this blog, make contact with me with the contact form in the right side bar, or a comment here on the blog, or a comment in the group on facebook, and or my personal facebook page.  I've tried for a couple of weeks to make contact, but need your email.**

  1. Wonderful donation Marjorie! Such a nice variety of items. The socks are wonderful, and the men will love to have warm feet. It didn't make it to 50 today here in MI. Frost again tomorrow night. So I know that cold weather will be in Ohio also. The homeless will be blessed by your gift.

  2. What a great donation. I always forget about washcloths! I have a lot of cotton yarn and they are such a good small project.

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.
