Buckeye Blanket Continues to Grow

WOW...where does time go?  Life has been very busy here, I was surprised to see how long it had been since my last post.  Several more rounds on this Buckeye Blanket have taken place since the last post.  And a good bit more since this picture which was in limbo.

I am currently looking into some possible new directions for SOME of our charity knitting and crocheting.  Our primary contact at Homeless Families Foundation is gone, and I'm not yet totally sure how that impacts our relationship with them.  I don't want to speculate on that or these other new possibilities until I have more information.  However, our work does continue in earnest with supplying other shelters and our friend Rae who cares for the Homeless in a very personal way.

So, please stay tuned and continue to let your heart guide you with you yarn, your hook and your knitting needles.

Hats:      174
Scarves:  109

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.

  1. Glad to hear from you! Glad the blanket is getting bigger. I have one scarf done, working on another scarf. I will also loom a hat or two before sending them off.

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?
