Slipper Socks Warm Homeless Feet

 Wonderfully warm slipper socks in lots of colors.  I think these knitted slipper socks are knitted with double yarn?  Or perhaps chunky yarn as they truly are nice and warm.  There was no note with a name or email address in this box so I don't know whom all are involved.  I know from the return address one name, Jane Burmeister; but I know this donation (and several to follow in other posts) comes from a group that gets together at work to knit and crochet, The Sullivan Group.  I've not been able to locate an email address, find a blog, and or facebook page so if anyone out there is reading this and is a part of this group, please make contact using the contact form in the right sidebar.

Here's a variety of cotton washcloths in many different styles, colors, and sizes.  Believe these are all crocheted.

Jane and this group are our newest pairs of helping hands.  Welcome to the group, we appreciate the help.

*Please include a note with your donation folks with your email, saves me trying to figure out whom you are in order to let you know the mail arrived safe and sound.
**Remember to avoid open stitches where you can put your finger through (v stitches, mile a minute, and granny style type stitches aren't as warm as solid stitches.
***Remember to avoid light colors, pastels, whites, and lots of bold colors as the darker colors serve a wider range of the population we strive to serve
****Please remember to tag hats, slippers, and mittens with size.

  1. Jane, I like your slippers socks and your bright colors wash cloths. I do a crochet pattern for slippers socks for Sandy.Rosemarie.

  2. Looks great Jane and the Group. Please let us know who and where you are. Fun to see who is doing what! Like the variety in the clothes. They are fun to do and definitely necessary. Lots of pretty colors. I could use a pair of those sox myself. Cold feet are not fun! Please keep up the good work.

  3. Welcome Jane and the Sullivan Group! Glad to have you in this great group. The slippers looks so warm. So nice to have warm feet in the cold. Nice variety of colors for the wash cloths also.

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?
