Hats and Scarves Warm Cold Homeless

Thank you Phyllis G for this thoughtful donation of hats and scarves.  I love how nicely you paired them to make sets!!  Great color choices.  Phyllis has also crocheted a pair of fingerless mitts..........always a hit, and a pair of slippers.  

Please click to enlarge so you can see one of the hat/scarf sets is an infinity scarf/mobius/cowl.

Many thanks Phyllis and please keep up the good work.

We're chipping away at our goal folks.  With 15 days left in the calendar year (though remember I traditionally don't close the year until all donations received by the end of year get blogged about and sometimes that goes into a week or two in January), we would need about 10.8 hats per day and 8.6 scarves per day to hit our goal of donating the same number that we donated last year.  I don't know how close we'll get,  but....please keep checking in to see.

Many thanks Cynthia and Juli, we hope to see you here often on Bridge and Beyond.


HATS:  171-8=163
SCARVES (Gators, Infinity Scarves)  139-10=129
MITTENS:  +9+1=+10
SLIPPERS: 52-1=51
SOCKS: 106
Misc, Ponchos, shawls, headbands etc aren't counted but very much appreciated.

**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.


  1. Very nice donation Phyllis G! WOO HOO More warm people this winter.

  2. I might copy the pattern for the scarves! That stripe in the middle makes it look extra special

    1. I like the design too. A bit unique

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?
