Thank you Darlene H. for this thoughtful and warm donation and scarves.  While our primary mission is handmade (knitted or crocheted or loomed) goods, Darlene found an awesome sale of warm mittens and thankfully.........she didn't turn them down.  11 pairs of hands will be warmer now.........so nice, as mittens are an item difficult for many to make, and we rarely get enough to cover the need.  In addition Darlene knitted 2 hats (lower right corner).

If you've been to the blog a number of times here on Bridge and Beyond, you I clap and dance in the streets when we receive mittens.........Thank you Darlene.

I'm going to try something a little different with keeping our stats.  I'm listing our end numbers from 2015 and will subtract our current number as means of keeping our goal in front of us.  I'll show the goal number in Red.  Let's strive not just to match last years numbers, but.........work towards even more.  Thank you for all you do.  As time goes on, we won't see the year end numbers, we'll see the previous goal and subtract the new donation from it.  Hopefully we'll find this helpful and not too cumbersome...if so, we'll return to our previous format.

Hats:  419-2=417
Scarves: 181 -2=179
Mittens/Gloves/Wrist Warmers: 121-11=110
Slippers: 104

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. Nice donation, Darlene. I'm always looking for good deals on mittens and gloves also. For me, I would rather buy them than make them. It was very thoughtful and there will be warmer hands because of you!

    1. I'm glad they will be useful. I actually bought the fleece on sale at Joanns and used the pattern at fleece fun.com to sew the mittens. Much faster than knitting.🙂 Darlene

  2. Nice donation Darlene. The mittens are very nice, lots of nice warm hands.

  3. This is a great donation since mitts are always needed especially now with that blizzard going on

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?
