Helping Homeless Through Knitting and Crocheting

 Thank you x 2 Karen S.  This first donation is 2 nice dark scarves and 15 cotton washcloths, (though you can't tell how many because they are stacked in the picture.  She also included some personal care items in this pouch.  But....wait, there's more
There was a 2nd pouch, a very generous donation from our friend Karen, more cotton washcloths (13) and 3 really nice knitted hats.  These hats are super warm, made with double yarn; as they are knitted on one of those cool round looms.  Very nice colors also Karen for men folk.

It's been awhile since I've talked about all the ways these wonderful cotton washcloths (knitted or crocheted) are used.  They're used by the folks living out in the elements as washcloths and dishcloths, there used at the shelters for folks when they first enter as washcloths along with personal care items, AND they're used as both dishcloths and washcloths in welcome home packets when folks transition from shelter living to their permanent housing situation.

Thank you Karen, and please keep up the good work.

**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.**

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?
