Crocheted Hats for the Homeless

Thank you Marsha M from Ohio for this awesome donation of crocheted goodies.  Marsha's been very busy crocheting hats in lots of different sizes and colors and styles.  And I think some are knitted too?  Correct me on that Marsha.  There were both?  She'a also included some scarves.  Though we've recently experienced some warmer temps and most of the snow has melted, we're now into the gray wet period so these nice warm items are still very much needed and appreciated.  

The worry of frost here in Central Ohio typically isn't until Memorial Day, so we still will have plenty of cold nights.  The calendar says it's Spring in March 20th, a week from now, but the signs of spring I rely on are seeing the pussy willows starting to open...which they hadn't when I took a walk the other day, and or the blooming of the yellow Forsythia bushes.  And they haven't even started to bud yet......plus there's the whole we always get one more snow after the Forsythia bloom.....so to my way of thinking...it will be a while until I'll be dancing in the streets because it's Spring.  It's all a process.

  1. Beautiful job Marsha. These will keep several people warm in the cold nights till we get to warmer weather. We are getting a long warm snap here in MN but it is definitely not over yet. Spring here is when I can put things outside without worrying about them freezing. Memorial weekend is when I feel safe to plant.:)THANKS AGAIN MARSHA. GOD BLESS THE HOMELESS. marj in minnesota/60 today

  3. Oh, look at all the wonderful hats! Very nice Marsha. Lots of warmer heads. The hats and scarves will still be needed for a while.
    Here in MI, we are to get down below 32 tonight. High 40's tomorrow, Monday 58! But later on in the week, night temps will be under 20 degrees. Working on a hat today.

  5. What a nice thing to do! I've crocheted for MD Anderson to give caps to cancer patients, and I've been intrigued and happy to see the scarves hanging from trees for the homeless. This is a good thing.

    1. Thanks all for the additional visits and comments, they are truly appreciated. Holly, nice to see you here and hope to see you again. The only problem with the scarves on trees is, they won't hold up unless someone gets them before it rains or snows or freezes, I wish people would put them in plastic bags or better yet take them to shelters were they're sure to be used vs taken down city workers when they do clean up. Hope you'l join us with your crochet.

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?
