Donation from New York Helps those in Need in Ohio



Thank you Thank you!  This wonderful donation is from our good friend, AnneMarie from New York.  She's been very busy, as you can tell with crocheting, ponchos, slippers, hats, and cotton wash cloths.  Special thanks for tagging and pairing your slippers, and for tagging your hats!  This saves untold hours both here when I sort and again at the shelters as the volunteers stock their shelves.

What a nice color selection with the hats, colors suitable for both men and women!  Likewise with the cotton washcloths.

Please keep up the good work AnneMarie, we so appreciate your on-going and long time support of Bridge and Beyond and Ohio's homeless.

Hats and Mittens Sets for the Homeless

Thank you thank you Emily for these matching sets of hats and mittens.  Folks, please click to see the details so you can see the mittens on the left (black ones), are both those fingerless mitts and mittens.  What a great idea.  Black and gray, wonderful colors for our homeless friends.  

I've been a bit delayed catching up folks, my apologies.  But, I'm almost there.  Please stay tuned.  

We've had the strangest weather, here in Ohio.  Currently it's quite warm, but it was less than a week ago we had the house all closed up and hit on for a couple of days.  A most unusual spring, so the car load I took to the shelter about 10 days - 2 weeks ago, was still very much needed.

Many thanks Emily for your on going efforts to help Bridge and Beyond and those homeless in need.  Please keep up the good work.

Knitting in Sunny Florida Aids Ohio's Homeless

 Our good friend and long time supporter, Sandra R from the sunny state of Florida hit a fabulous end of the season sale and picked up all these knit hats.  Our mission is of course hand made, but she wisely didn't pass up this opportunity.  After all 14 hats, means 14 more head will be warmer.  How wonderful is that!  A nice variety of both size and color in the lot which will be helpful too many.
If you scroll back, you'll see a wonderful Log Cabin Style Knitted Afghan she made in addition to wise shopping....AND mittens, hats, and cotton washcloths in this picture.  Sandra has been super super busy!  I love and always get especially excited with her mittens!  Notice the style hats folks (remember you can always click to enlarge the picture to see details better), nice and long and stretchy gives one the ability to roll the brim.  I've done that with hat in the lower right, the 2 tone gray and burgundy, so you can see.  As always, special thanks for tagging all your hats with size, and mittens as well.

Thank you for your hard work, your on going support are truly valued.

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?
