Knitting Afghans and More for Homeless

 Thank you Sandra R from Florida where so many endured so much recently from Hurricane Irma.  Sandra included.  Relieved to hear you're ok.  Such widespread tragedy and destruction.  Beautifully knitted cotton washcloths.  I love love the brown, the men folk will too.  The pattern in the green scarf is like ribbing and therefore nice and thick...sorta squishy, which will make it nice and warm~
Sandra excels in knitting these awesome Log Cabin Afghans.  She mixes colors so nicely that the afghans work well for men and women.  Beautifully made as always!  These style is really a personal favorite of mine, and what a great way to use up odds and ends.  If you've spent anytime looking at traditional quilts, you'll see this log cabin style frequently.  Lovely, please click to enlarge the picture so you can see this beauty

Yarn, Yarn, Yarn EveryWhere

I saved these picture some time back to share with you all, and just came across it again and realized....I hadn't shared it with you.

Seriously, we all need a good laugh or a smile..........this did it for me.  How about you?  First off, let me say, I'm amazed whomever is driving the car isn't complaining about the yarn on the deck...sorta in the way of viewing?  Or at least if I were driving would be for me.  I do knit and crochet in the car.  I find long car trips boring otherwise.  Plus, hubby loves to drive and I don't.  So, I can often get's lots done in the car.  But, hello canvas bags.

Do you knit or crochet in the car?

How do you transport your yarn and your project?

Loving the ghan?  I assume it's a ghan, and it looks like she's doing some serious stash busting using every color of the rainbow.

Crochet Hats Warm Homeless

Five awesome hats from our long time supporter and friend, Sandie P from Louisiana.  Not sure what type of yarn Sandie used in these hats, but it's particularly soft, and thick.  These hats will be nice and warm.  And gray is a color good for anyone, male or female.  Gray doesn't stand out in a crowd, which is very important to most homeless people.  They don't like to call attention to themselves.  Sadly, part of that reason is for self protection from both police and thugs.  Special thanks too Sandie for tagging your hats with size.

Tagging hats, mittens, slippers with size is important.  Each item we knit or crochet get's separated here at my house, and again at the various shelters so volunteers can get the donated items to the right people.  Tags don't have to be a work of art, but please do include them on each item.  You can use these little white tags with string like Sandie has done above, or scrap paper attached with yarn.  I've seen some cleaver folks cut squares or circles with pinking shears to make their tags.  All work!  Please do not use safety pins, or paper clips, or sticky labels to attach size.

Many thanks Sandie for your long time support of Ohio's Homeless in need, please keep up the good work.

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?
