Hats, Socks and Afghans Aid Homeless

 Thank you Sheelagh for this thought and very generous donation.  What a pretty afghan.  I'm drawing a blank at the moment what this method/stitch is called.  Lovely colors.  One of the ladies will be thrilled to get this and curl up with it.  It looks so springy right now which has me hopeful, as I'm soooooooo tired of winter. Entrelac Crochet.  Took me a while to think about what it was.  I personally have never used this method, but did a google search for a video.  Most of the video's on how to do this are 30-40 minutes long.  But, I did find this shorter version........whether this is enough to get someone going or not I'm not sure, but thought I'd post in case someone wants to check it out.  Click Here
She's also been busy knitting hats.  Tried to turn up the brim on the far left hat so you can see it's a different color on the inside.  It's reversible...and or just really warm because it's doubled.  The two black hats are so cute with a brim.  Please do click to enlarge so you can see the details of these hats.

Sheelagh has also included socks!  Yeah, we love getting socks to warm people's feet.  Nothing worse than cold, wet feet.  And if you're living in the elements or spending nights in a shelter but out and about during the day waiting until the time you can go in...........a change into warm socks is heaven.

Wonderful donation....but wink wink, there's more.  Do pop back in again tomorrow to see the rest of her goodies.  I'm trying not to add too many pictures at a time to help the loading time of the blog.

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?
