Colorful Cotton Washcloths for Homeless

What a bunch of wonderfully knitted cotton washcloths!  I love both designs used here for Melinda G's thoughtful donation of cotton washcloths.  She's knitted some in the corner to corner fashion, typically called Grandma's favorite (check the multi-blue top left), and others side to side.  I love the fun bright cheery colors.  Knitted Cotton Wash clothes serve several purposes in our donations.  They are appreciated and used by those living in the elements, as well as those living in shelters...and those transitioning from shelter living to a permanent housing situation.  

They are used as wash clothes and dish clothes.  The knitted clothes are so much softer than traditional store washcloths and feel so good anytime you use them, but particularly so for those who's skin can be irritated from living outdoors, and or those in shelters who just simply don't get to bath as much as they might like.

These hand made cotton clothes also convey a special message, and that is that someone cared enough to take their time and make something for you.  We give comfort in so many ways.

Many thanks for your thoughtful donation, Melinda.  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?
