Thank you Karen S for this wonderful donation of crocheted warm hats and scarves.  Absolutely LOVE the brown.  Brown is such a great color for the men.  Special thanks too for tagging the hats with size.  Folks if you click to enlarge the picture you'll see Karen's hand made size tags....so cute!  I assume it's card stock, or perhaps even index card that has been cut with either a dye or pinking shears?

Karen has also crocheted 5 cotton washcloths, that are always so well received.  The cotton washcloths has so many uses.  

If you're new to reading this blog, Bridge and Beyond (dedicated to helping homeless through knitting and crocheting), you may not be familiar with this type of crochet that Karen uses in her scarves.  There are apparently many different names for it, Double Ended Crochet, Cro-hooking, Reversible Tunisian and more.  It's been a while since I posted a video on how Karen accomplishes this interesting light and dark side to the scarves...as well as interesting texture.  I posted about it HEREPlease have a look.

Thank you Karen for your on going support of Bridge and Beyond and our Homeless Friends in Needs.  We all appreciate it, and you.

**The counts on our progress bars are current, the percentages not quite.  I'll not be figure the percentages with each update of numbers, but will be updating again next at least by the 20th.  I have in fact made a reminder not on my cell phone for the 20th of each month to do percentages.  If we're at a milestone, or I just have extra time I may do it more often...but certainly at that scheduled time.**

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 Karen S! Your items always look so soft and warm.

  2. That blue is just gorgeous! I adore brown. It looks warm to me. Like hot cocoa or coffee

  3. Never thought of brown that way Cynthia, but love the description. Holding a warm cup of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate is such a pleasant perspective. Right you are Sue, Karen’s donations are always warm, and cushy.

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?
