Donating Crocheted Scarves

Thank you Susie J for this thoughtful donation of scarves and infinity scarves/mobius scarves.  Cute pattern!  Please click folks to see the details bettr.  I have layed these aside for the time being rather than including them in our regular deliveries to homeless shelters. I think they are more suited for some special areas...with the lacey look and light colors,  I think some ladies forgotten at a nursing home would truly love these...and or perhaps some teens in need, but not necessarily homeless.  Can't you see the smiles as someone wraps this around their neck to know that someone hand crocheted these specially for them!

I'm going to check with Rae, our friend who prepares hot meals for those in need to see the best usage.

Many thanks for your thoughtfulness, please keep up the good work.

**For anyone new to the blog, the counting below maybe confusing.  When 2016 began, we started with the number of items donated the previous year and are counting down in hopes of hitting and surpasses the number of items donated last year.**

Scarves:   44 -7 = 37
Mittens/Gloves/Wrist Warmers:  63
Slippers:   36

Afghans:  1 (wow folks, we're almost even with last year, so let's see how far beyond it we can go)
Socks:   102
Cowls/Hoody Combo's, headbands:   6 -5 = 1
Shawls and shrugs, ponchos, sweaters & vests etc +1
Misc: items like personal care, headbands etc and things don't fit into above categories aren't counted.

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?
