Thank you Laurie Smith for this donation of crocheted warmth. I borrowed the picture you posted on our facebook page because the one I took was as my battery died on the camera and it didn't turn out such that you could even see things. Laurie has I think the approval of her kitty? Or maybe...the kitty saying hey, don't mail those I want to lounge about them.
Folks, we're officially into spring, but.........the day before the 1st day of spring we had snow flurries, the first official day we had below freezing temps, and the 2nd day of spring it was even colder...25 when I got up in the morning. So, while your calendars tell you it's Spring, please please don't stop knitting and crocheting. The need most definitely still exists.
Hats: 297 -2 =295
Scarves: 141 -1 =140
Mittens/Gloves/Wrist Warmers: 97
Rain Poncho's: +95
Cotton Washcloths: 368 -4 = 364
Cowls/Hoody Combo's, headbands: 9
Shawls and shrugs, ponchos, sweaters & vests etc 0
Misc: items like personal care, headbands etc and things don't fit into above categories aren't counted.
Please note the category of shawl, shrugs, ponchos etc has reached our little goal, same as last year of 1.........but please please please.........don't let that stop you from making more of these items. Likewise note we've definitely reached our goal for rain poncho's. Rain ponchos's serve many purposes so we will probably still need some....down the line, but not for awhile.
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.
