Long Time Supporter, Sandie P, Thank You for your Donations

 Thank you Sandie P for these awesome crocheted scarves.  The blue-green scarf is super soft Lion Brand Homespun Yarn.  You can see it has a bit more texture, partially due to the yarn and partially due to the different stitch Sandie used.  Sandie has been one of the longest supporters of Bridge and Beyond and Ohio's Homeless.  Her work is always beautiful.

Sandie maintains a blog where she often does tutorials about how to do a particular stitch or how to work with a particular pattern.  If you've not visited her blog, please do.  These two donations of crocheted scarves came in 2 separate pouches at different times, but because I'm playing catch up, I'm posting them here together.  Notice there's actually sunshine on the 2nd picture with the 3 nice gray scarves..........we don't see much of that this time of the year.  Seriously, today as I'm typing it's just warmed up to 28 degrees.......yes that means it was colder earlier.  It was 20 when I got out of bed this am.  I'm cold here in the house, so it's beyond my comprehension how cold it must for folks living out in the elements.  So, truly these warm scarves that are long enough to wrap around and wide enough to really cover the neck and chest are perfect.

Folks, please refresh your memory about what sizes, colors, and fibers are needed by reading the information in the tabs across the top of the blog for the item you're knitting or crocheting.  It's important to be sure our donations meet the needs of those we serve.  Please remember to stay away from white, and pastels and suede or novelty or wool yarn.  We need items made that can be washed and that hold up well.  If you have question not addressed in those tabs across the top of the blog, please sing out.

Thank you Sandie for your long time support and your giving heart.

**The counts on our progress bars are current. 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. Always glad to help. It's 45 here this morning and I'm freezing. I can't imagine being outdoors in 20 degrees with no place to get out of the cold. Glad to be able to provide some help.

    1. Sorry you're experiencing those temps. That's certainly not normal for your area. Take care, and many thanks.

  2. Wonderful, warm looking scarves Sandie P! The colors are great for the homeless. It is Monday, the 11th and it is snowing here in MI. Plus it is very cold. Tues or Weds night will drop down to 8. I hope this cold will not make it to you in OH.

    1. Yikes Sue, we've had one snow so far; but it wasn't alot and our temps weren't quite that bad. Hope your's didn't stick around too long. Thanks for the visits and comments.


PLEASE leave your name and url, NOT a profile link, not a google or google plus. Only name and url will take me directly to your blog to return the favor of a comment.

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?
