Homeless Donations from Sunny Florida

 LOVE LOVE LOVE this colorful afghan.  What an awesome way to use up scrapes.  Also wonderful way to have a small project to tote around, or to work on when it's warm.  You make lots of scarves and crochet together.  Our very good friend, and long time supporter Sandra R has done it again.  Beautiful, fun, and cheery.  This afghan will work for either male or female with it's nice mix of colors.  It's soft, warm and large enough for a family afghan as well.  Way to go Sandra!
 But.....wait, she's not done.  Look at these wonderful hats and scarves!  Hats of different styles and colors and sizes to warm cold heads in need.  Special thanks too Sandra for tagging with size.  Tagging with size helps get hats to the right sized hats quicker than those not tagged with size.  Awesome work as always..............
BUT......she's not done, Mittens and more hats.  You know how excited I get when we get mittens!!  Yippee, I'm dancing with joy.  Once again Sandra has tagged hats and mittens with size.  Sandra R from Florida, YOU TOTALLY ROCK!!

  1. Very nice donation Sandra R! Great scrap afghan. That will sure keep a family warm in the cold.
    Sandy, you didn't subtract the mittens from the total.

  2. I love that afghan. It reminds me of the scrap strip afghans I used to make using seed stitch. Is this one dc? If you could detail it, perhaps others might like to use up their scraps in that manner. (It's hard to count from a picture but I'm guessing about 30 stitches across and maybe 110 rows or thereabouts)

    1. Am not able to detail it, but think you're pretty close. The amount of yarn might dictate the width of the strip/scarf. I do remember it was double crochet, which would probably make it a nice project in that it could go fast. The time working in ends would probably be the biggest use of time.

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?
