Busy Hands in Florida Aid Ohio's Homeless

Thank you Susan A from Florida for this wonderful and very generous donation of knitted warm goodies.  Susan has been very busy as you can see.  She's knitted hats, scarves, mittens, and slippers.  She's included several styles of slippers, some appropriate for men others more appropriate for women.  NICE!  Love the variety in sizes and colors you've chosen for all your goodies, many people will be kept warmer because of your donation.  Thank you also for taking the time to attach tags with sizes for your hats, and slippers, much appreciated.

Susan's also included toothbrushes.  Personal care items are always needed and a great way for someone who doesn't knit or crochet to help.

AND you know how excited I get when we get donations of mittens, truly an item we never get enough of.  Folks just the other day I had a request for mittens for kids, so if you're about to cast on might I nudge you to knit/crochet some mittens for children?

Please keep up the good work Susan, hope to see you here often on Bridge and Beyond.

**Susan tells me she used Nola's Slipper Pattern for the sock like bootie style slippers.  I always enjoy knowing, as I know many of you do as well what patterns people have used and liked.

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?
