Donating Knitted Hats Warms Homeless

Thank you Shelby M for this thoughtful donation of wonderful knitted hats.  Please click to enlarge the picture so you can see the details.  Each hat is a different style, different stitches etc.  Wonderful colors to please a variety of folks in need.  Many thanks too Shelby, for taking time to tag each one with size.  That's appreciated by many people.  It saves enormous time at the various shelters when volunteers separate the donations in order to get things to the right people.  

Hard to pick a favorite, but think I'm partial to the green and gray striped hat..

Please keep up the good work, hope to see you here often on Bridge and Beyond.

Team Work Helps Ohio's Homeless

I LOVE this donation!  It's particularly special to me because it's team work at it's finest.  These scarves are the work of a group of young women, Girl Scouts!!  A local Girl Scout Troup learned to knit and used their loving time to make this donation.  Lots of different designs, colors, and sizes of scarves; as well as a neckwarmer/gator/cowl.  I was contacted by their leader, Melissa P.  I really enjoy seeing young people, who often get a bad wrap about being selfish or uncaring, putting their time to such good use.  What a truly wonderful project.  They all learned to knit and to give to those who's needs are greater than their own.  I really do think this is very special.

Thank you Emma P, Maggie P, Jillian G, Ella S, and Bianca C.  The girls rang in age from 14 to 17.  Nice work ladies, you should feel very proud of yourself, I know I am.

Please keep up the good work ladies, and best of luck with whatever your next Scout Project is.

Colorful Crocheted Scarves Donated to Help Others

 Thank you Ann M for this thoughtful donation of colorful scarves.  Please remember to click to see details with her stitches.  These scarves vary in size and color.  Some will be suitable for the young kids, some teens and adults as well.  Nice variety Ann.  The solid wide green scarf will be nice for men folk.  A little something for everyone here.

Below you see two small baby sized afghans.   Thankfully, we seldom have need for items for the wee ones, so for the time being I'll lay these aside.  I will add to both to make larger afghans, and this will give me a head start to build from.  LOVE the bright pink, lots of possibilities there.  Stay tuned folks, as I'll repost when complete.

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?
