Knitting and Crocheting for Homeless

Our good friend, Karen S has been very busy with her crochet hook crafting wonderful warm scarves using her special technique.  I LOVE the way they look.  What's particularly cool with this donation is, she made two of the blue and gray...so, I've laid them out so you can truly see the light and dark side to fully appreciate it.  

Additionally, she's been very busy with her loom and knitted 6 hats, some of which match the scarves to make sets.  She always takes the time to make these cute size tags for her hats.  The beauty of her method is...you don't have to purchase special tags.  Small pieces of colored paper, cute with pinking shears and tied on with yarn scraps.

I stress the tags because we still get hats, mittens, and slippers without size tags and would really like again to request that all hats, slippers, and mittens have size tags attached.  This takes less time for the maker, then for all the volunteers to guess when sorting.

Many thanks Karen, and as always, please keep up the good work.

**The counts on our progress bars are current. 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.

    1. They really are nice and warm Frances, they're a bit thicker due to the way they're made. Thanks for the visit, always appreciated.

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?
