A Group Donation Helps Homeless

 28 Knitted Cotton Wash Cloths, in my personal favorite design, "Grandma's Favorite."  This pattern has been around a very long time and is always a big hit.  The corner to corner is fun, and Christina D, has jazzed things up a bit more by using fun color combinations.  Plus, I've not seen the red/green/ fall looking variegated cotton before.  LOVE it.  I've stacked those cotton wash cloths for this picture, so you might not be able to tell there are 28 in this donation!!  AND the brown/tan/gray........perfect for the men folk.  Thank you Christina for your long term support of Bridge and Beyond, and special thanks for remember the men with this donation.  Woot woot, look at our totals....72 over last years numbers!!
 This donation of yarn and a crocheted scarf is from our friend Nikki, with the toothbrushes being from her mother, Linda!  Nikki hand delivered her donation, her mothers donation, and her friend and our supporter, Christina's donation above.  Special Thanks for the special delivery Nikki.  Great yarn colors that will come in quite handy.  Initially, I'm thrilled to get the black.  Laid  aside a ghan I've been working on, as I needed........Black!  Perfect.  I'll get busy and get that ghan finished, hopefully soon.
This picture turned out a bit light, so the colors aren't quite right.  Plus, I see a couple of spots...note to self clean camera lens.  This lapghan Nikki crochet is a nice blue and burgundy.  Great colors for anyone, male or female!!

Many thanks Nikki for your donation, and your special delivery.  Both are very much appreciated.

**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.

  2. Every year I try knitting but it never takes. Seems like a dishcloth might be a thing to try. I'll put that on my to-do list!

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?
