Knitted Cotton Washcloths, Always a hit at Homeless Shelters

Thank you Sue S for this wonderful collection of knitted cotton washcloths.  Folks Sue donated these lovely cloths some time back, but somehow the picture didn't get posted.  It got moved to the done file instead of the pending file where I keep pictures of donations needed to be posted.  Argh..Thanks so much Sue for your thoughtful donation, your on going support, and for your diligence.

I LOVE the bright turquoisey one on right side.  What happy colors.  Love to have a dress in those colors.

Keep up the good work Sue.  These cotton cloths get used in several ways by those in shelters, under the bridges, and those moving into their permanent housing situation.

Hats:     134
Scarves:  94
Mittens/Gloves/Wrist Warmers:  74
Slippers:   40
Rain Poncho's:   +106
Cotton Washcloths:  285 -4 =281
Afghans:  8
Socks:   124
Cowls/Hoody Combo's, headbands:   8
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.

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?
