Knitting and Crocheting Helps Homeless

Thank you Emily K for this awesome donation.  Emily has knitted and crocheted a nice variety of goodies here, hats, scarves, mittens, and fingerless gloves/wrist warmers.  She's also included some personal care items in her donation for Ohio's Homeless.  Partial to the green and blue goodies, always great colors for either men or women.

Many thanks Emily, please keep up the good work.  We here at Bridge and Beyond appreciate you and I know the folks receiving your warm goodies do as well.

Yes, it's Spring...yes the grass has turned green, and yes we have flowers popping up....But, it's still cold, and wet and people are very much still in need folks, so please keep your hands busy knitting and crocheting for others.

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.

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?
