Crocheted Colorful Scarves and Afghans Aid Ohio's Homeless

 Love love love, this fun colorful cheery afghan fresh off the hook of our dear friend, Sandra R from sunny Florida.  Simple stripes and double crochet, proves our afghans don't need to be fancy stitches to be awesome, or pretty or warm and inviting.  And...did you notice that sun on the afghan.  Sandra is always so good to box up sun sunshine for us with her donations, lol.  Seriously....do take note.  The sun does NOT come in throw my windows often in the winter so this was a special day!!  The afghan is cozy, warm, and very cherry.  It's suitable in size and color for either a male or female.  Thank you Sandra.
But, you can see.......she's not done!  Not Sandra.  Look at this fun colorful scarves.  I know there's a name for this type of yarn, but I can't think of it at the moment.  It's not variegated as it's really a blending of two colors....help someone.  What is this called.  And Sandra what type of yarn is it?  Would love to buy some.........cause I really really need more yarn, lol.  But, seriously, I love how this is a solid color, but not.

****Hey folks, I'm still wanting to change the default font on this blog, but haven't found where to do it.  It used to be more straight forward when you picked a theme or color, but for the life of me...I can't find where to do.  So each blog post I write I pick one and it's beginning to get annoying.  If someone knows how to change it permanently....please please sing out.

Thank you Sandra for your awesome donation, and as always keep up the good work.

**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. What lovely colors! The yarn for the scarves looks like Scarfie. This is inspiring. Now back to my crochet hook! lol

    1. Thanks for visiting, and commenting and making a note so I know what kind of yarn to look for. So glad you knew what it was, I didn't. Also, thanks for going back to your crochet hook, lol

  2. Love the colorful afghan and scarves. If Lisa is correct and that is Scarfie, I'm going to be looking for some too. It looks really interesting.

    1. Me too Sandie. Thanks for visiting and commenting.

  3. Love the colors on the scarves also! The afghan looks very warm. A scrappy afghan is a good way to use up left over yarn.

    1. I love all the colors too in the afghan, very interesting. Right you are about the scraps!!

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?
