Crocheted Warm Items Help Homeless

Thank you Emily K for this thoughtful donation of crocheted goodies.  As you can see, Emily has been busy crocheting hats, scarves, mittens, and fingerless gloves!  You all know how excited I get when we get mittens.  Really nice Emily.  Love how many different head sizes you've made warm with this donation.  Particularly like the hat on the right with warm orange and earth stripes!

Emily has also included some personal care items, AND batteries.  Folks batteries are always needed by those living out in the elements for things like flashlights; though it's not something I've asked for in the past.  Batteries are heavy and I was concerned about the weight issues and it making postage more costly; but.........they are indeed an item that is needed and appreciated.

Many thanks Emily, please keep up the good work.

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.

  1. Very nice donation Emily K! You will be keeping more people warm. It has been a cold weekend here in MI. We did have some snow this morning! Next weekend will be in the 70's. I am sure Ohio is still seeing cold weather also.

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?
