Cotton WashCloths Aid the Homeless

Thank you Fran M for this thoughtful donation of crocheted  cotton washcloths.  As you know, if you've been to Bridge and Beyond before, these cotton washcloths are used in several ways.  We donate them to the shelters where they're used as washcloths when folks first arrive (often they have nothing), they're used when they transition out of shelter living into a permanent housing situation in their welcome home packs  (where they can be used as either dish cloths or personal washcloths), and they are used by our folks under the bridges and in the elements...also as either dish cloths or personal washcloths.

Such a pretty blue variegated Fran.  Many thanks for your thoughtfulness.  Please keep up the good work.

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.

Hats:  377
Scarves: 175
Mittens/Gloves/Wrist Warmers: 105
Slippers: 104
Rain Poncho's:  105
Cotton Washcloths: 444 -2 = 442
Afghans:   18
Socks: 201
Cowls/Hoody Combo's, headbands:  11
Shawls and shrugs 1
Misc: items like personal care and things don't fit into above categories aren't counted

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. Neato to see it..thank you...you doing such great work and do so much...God bless. 💗. 🙏

  2. I also love the variegated blue. Fran always does such a nice job with her crocheting. Wash/Dish cloths always needed.

  3. Such a pretty blue Frances M! Those are so bright and pretty to see after all the snow we got in Michigan yesterday. I like that you used 2 different patterns. They will cheer someone up when they use them.

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?
