Crocheting for Ohio's Homeless

Thank you Karen S for this awesome donation.  Folks please click to enlarge the photo so you can see the details.  I've placed the scarf so you can see both sides.  One side is lighter and one is darker.  I LOVE this look and have asked Karen how she accomplished it.  It looks knitted to me, but she explained it's crocheted with a hook on each end of the crochet hook.  It adds such nice texture, and also makes it a bit stretchy it seems to me.

Thank you Karen for this thoughtful donation and for including those super warm socks.  These were delivered last week so I know someone is warmer, as we speak.

Please keep up the good work.

**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?
