Mittens, Hats Scarves and Sets, Oh My!

 Thank you Sandra R from sunny Florida.  Look at this wonderful donation.  She truly amazes me with the quantity of work she does.  I've said it before, I swear she knits without stopping to eat or sleep.  She's been busy knitting hats, scarves, cotton dishcloths, and MITTENS!
You all know how excited I get when we get mittens.  She always takes time to tag her mittens and hats with size......thank you very much.  AND she's taken things a step farther.  Check the top picture.  She's attached sets.  In some cases the sets are fingerless mitts, and in other cases full mittens.  She watched the video I posted HERE, about how to loom knit fingerless mitts.  I did this 
after we received some made by Anna W that were particularly nice and very warm as they extend up the arm a good deal.  Sandra said in her note to me, she thought it was fun to try something else, so she purchased a loom and went at it.  

As always, many thanks for your generous donations and your long time support of Ohio's Homeless through Bridge and Beyond.  You truly make a difference.  Please, please keep up the good work.

***Look how are goals are coming along, it's fun to watch those graphs and numbers grow.

What Do Opera and Homelessness Have in Common?

Russian Violinist who came to the US in her 20's, seeking asylum, ends up homeless.  She's become known as The Subway Soprano in Los Angeles.  

PLEASE take time to click on the link below for the full story, and listen...by all means listen to her beautiful singing in the subway at first, then she how her life is being transformed!

Beautiful story Emily Zamourka, being helped by Officer Frazier, and an offer from music producter, Joel Diamond.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if all homeless stories could end so well.

Thank You Sandie P for Donating to Ohio's Homeless

Our good friend and long time supporter, Sandie P has been very busy with her crochet hook.  4 Beautifully made warm soft scarves to help Ohio's Homeless in need.  Sandie, loves blue......What's great about the color blue is it works for everyone.  It works for men, for women, for adults, for teens; as well as the younger set.  These scarves are nice and big and will warm adults who will be thrilled!

The plum colored scarf is also great, as it's a color that won't show the dirt.  Laundry is not something many homeless are able to do easily.  That's why we ask our crafters to stay away from white, beige, pastels etc.  

Many many thanks Sandie for your long time support of Bridge and Beyond.  Please know you make a difference, an important one.

Scarves From Illinois Help Ohio's Homeless

Thank you Kathy S from Illinois for this thoughtful donation of crocheted scarves.  Looks like Kathy's been busy making an even dozen scarves!  These small scarves will be ideal for the young ones.  Most of the colors are more suited for little girls, but there are also some that will work for the little guys as well.

Kathy's scarves are super soft and I'm sure the kiddo's that wrap these around their necks will be happy and warm!  Kathy's donation takes our number of donated scarves to just about 1/3 of the way there.  YIPPEE, love to see the numbers grow.

Many thanks Kathy and 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?
