Hats, Scarves, Mittens and More Aid the Homeless

 This is a bit of an unusual donation from our good friend Sandra R from Florida.  We knit, crochet and donate...but she found a great sorta end of the season sale so we have some hats and gloves not made by her; but.......they will help someone.  I've separated the pastels out for the teen pile.  In addition to her great sale, she's been busy knitted and crocheting hats, scarves, and mittens.  She the 2nd picture as well.
I LOVE LOVE the nice dark colored hats sized large enough for the men folk.  AND look at the great mittens.  Thanks also for tagging hats and mittens with size, and pairing the mittens together with yarn so the pair stay in tack.

Sandra's generous donation came in two of those large polly type mailing pouches.  I mention this folks, because you often reduce postage cost since the pouches are lighter weight than an equivalent box size would be.

**Would the person who donated red and gray socks, knitted hat and scarf please make contact.  You can email me at sandycrochet@gmail.com, leave a comment here on the blog, and or leave a note using the contact form here on the blog.**

**We started the year with the number of items we had donated last year, 2016; and will subtract our donations from that.  Using the end number for 2016 as the goal for the each item.  So, as the year continues you will see numbers decrease.  Our goal is to meet and surpass the number of items donated last year.**

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?
