Clapping for Knitted Mittens for The Homeless

Do you hear me?  Listen....you know how excited I get and clapp for mittens and sometimes dance in the street, lol.  Seriously though folks, you know I truly do get excited about mittens.  Sandra R, our good friend and long time supporter from Florida makes truly awesome mittens.  So...yeah I'm pretty excited.  She's made set's folks and paired them with appropriate sized hats.  Please to enlarge the picture, as you always can on this blog to see details.  Sandra has been busy, hats, scarves, mittens, and cotton washcloths!  A truly generous donation.

Sandra has included several styles and sizes of hats which help us warm many heads in need.

I hope you're being safe there in Florida Sandra with the Zika Virus and Mosquito's.

As always, many many thanks and please keep up the good work.  We all appreciate you.

  3. Lots of folks will be kept warm with these nice items. Sandy, I do get confused with the new system of counting. Are you saying, for example, that to reach what you got last year you would need 285 washcloths, 94 hats... etc?

    1. Yes, decided to try this different method and when I asked about it most folks responded they liked the idea better...as they always knew what the target was that way.

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?
