Hat and Scarf Sets Aid Ohio's Homeless

Thank you Karen S for this thoughtful donation.  I've blogged many times about Karen's unusual design with the light and the dark side of scarves.  I'm a big fan.  Please click to see the details, as you always can click to enlarge pictures.  She's made two awesome scarf and hat sets.  The hats are loomed and so nice and warm.

Thank you for tagging your hats with size Karen.  Several posts back I mentioned the various ways people tag their items.  Karen uses one of the methods I mentioned, cutting a shape, and tying it on with left over yarn.  They show up nicely and really help the volunteers at the shelters.

Many thanks Karen for your on going support of Bridge and Beyond.  Fall is upon us and the need for nice warm things will grow.


2016 Donations:
HATS: 286-2=284
SCARVES (Gators, Infinity Scarves) 255-2=253

**We started the year with the number of items we had donated last year, 2016; and will subtract our donations from that.  Using the end number for 2016 as the goal for the each item.  So, as the year continues you will see numbers decrease.  Our goal is to meet and surpass the number of items donated last year.**

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.

PLEASE...Leave your name and URL of your blog, NOT Google+ Profile. I'm can't return the favor of a blog visit if you leave Google+ !!!

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?
