Crocheting to Warm Those in Need


Thank you Emily K for this thoughtful donation.  She has crocheted scarves, headbands, infinity scarves, cotton washcloths....AND has included personal care items with her donation.  All wonderful items to help warm those in need here in Central Ohio.  Folks, we've had days barely above zero lately, we've had snow, we've had freezing rain.  People without a roof over their heads, people living in temporary shelters need our help. Our hand made (knitted, loomed, crocheted or sewed) items really can make a difference.  Not only do they help keep someone physically warmer, they give them emotional warm.    Knowing someone took time to make something for them is indeed special.

Please keep up the good work folks.  You are all so very much appreciated.

If time is tight and you're not able to knit or crochet right now..........or if you're someone who doesn't knit or crochet but would like to help.  PLEASE, scroll back to the previous post with information about a Go Fund Me Page and help feed someone hungry.

**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.**

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?
