Crocheted Warmth for Homeless in Need

Thank you Emily K for this thoughtful and generous donation of crocheted goodies for Ohio's Homeless.  Emily has crocheted cotton washcloths, mittens (some fingerless, some with mitten cover), and a scarf and hat.  She also included always needed socks and personal care items.  Something here for everyone.

I love the nice dark colors so suitable for our folks living out in the elements and those without easy access to laundry facilities.  

Thank you Emily for your on going support of the cause here on Bridge and Beyond.  Please know how appreciated you are, and how much you truly help those that need it.

Keep up the good work.

**For anyone new to the blog, the counting below maybe confusing.  When 2016 began, we started with the number of items donated the previous year and are counting down in hopes of hitting and surpasses the number of items donated last year.**

Scarves:  45 -1= 44
Mittens/Gloves/Wrist Warmers:  66 -3 =63
Slippers:   36
Rain Poncho's:   +106
Cotton Washcloths:  269 -9 =260
Afghans:  1 (wow folks, we're almost even with last year, so let's see how far beyond it we can go)
Socks:   108 -6 =102
Cowls/Hoody Combo's, headbands:   7 -1=6
Shawls and shrugs, ponchos, sweaters & vests etc +1
Misc: items like personal care, headbands etc and things don't fit into above categories aren't counted.

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. Wonderful donation Emily! The colors you used are great for the men. The personal care items & socks will be very nice to have.

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?
