Knitted Slipper Socks to Warm Homeless Feet

Thank you Paulette for these awesome warm slippers!  These slippers are nice and warm.....super thick.  People will love to put them on their tired, cold, and possibly wet feet.  Wonderful color selection, something for everyone.  Special thanks too Paulette for tagging each with size, it's so helpful and such a huge huge time saver for folks at the various shelters.

I keep saying I need to try and make a pair of these, haven't made it yet, but must put it on my to do list for 2018.  Have you sent me your pattern?

Many thanks for your on going support of Bridge and Beyond and Ohio's Homeless in Need.  Please keep up the good work.

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?
