Crocheted Scarves Warm Homeless

Thank you Sandie P from Louisiana for these wonderful crocheted scarves.   The green isn't showing up real well, as it was a very dark and dreary day when the photo was taken........even with lights on.   But, it's really a perfect nice solid color that works well for men or women.  Sandie has been a very long time supporter for Bridge and Beyond, in fact she was perhaps the very first person to donate or one of the first 2...hum, might have to go and refresh my memory.

Great work as always Sandie.  Only thing lacking was sunshine and warmth from your state of Louisiana.  Seriously, I looked hard in the pouch for some; you must have forgotten to include it for us.  Hint hint, wink wink!!

Keep up the good work, please and thanks.

  1. Nice scarves Sandie P. The dark green works good for both men and women. The scarves look warm.

  2. No sunshine here today, Sandy, though it's not too cool! Glad the scarves are good. I tried hard to get that 72". :-) I like that yarn as well. I thought it was pretty soft.

  3. The hunter green is my mom's favourite colour. You are getting quite a good amount and it is only March.

  4. I love this color green. As always you have done a great job.

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?
