Hats for the Homeless


Hats and Slippers!  thank you Vicki D for this thoughtful crocheted donation of warm hats and slippers.  This hat design with the folded brim is so nice.  Makes it heavier and warmer as is with doubled thickness, and gives one the ability to fold it down to make the nat longer and or cover more of the ears.  Thanks also for tagging them with size.  That is so truly helpful.  Nice slippers booties also tagged with size.  Even when people have a roof over their heads (as in a shelter night), having something warm and clean to put on one's feet is heaven.  It's not uncommon for feet to be cold and or wet from spending the day outside in the elements, so to be able to take off wet shoes and socks and put on dry clean and warm slippers is truly wonderful.

Many thanks Vicki D and please keep up the good work.  Hope to see you here often on Bridge and Beyond.

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?
