Crocheting, a skill That Aids Homeless and Others in Need.

Thank you Cindy K for this thoughtful donation of crocheted hats and cotton washcloths.  As you can see, there are some nice solid colored hats, and some cute, smaller striped hats for younger heads.  She also included a good variety of colors with her cotton washcloths.

If you new to the blog, you may wonder why cotton (knit or crocheted) washcloths, they don't keep people warm.  Right you are, they don't.  But, they are used in a variety of ways.  When folks get a night off the streets in a shelter they often don't have anything in order to clean up, and knitted and cotton washcloths with personal care items really are appreciated.  They're used again when folks transition from shelter living to a permanent housing situation in welcome home packs.  In the welcome home packs, folks have the ability to use these as personal washcloths or dishcloths.  The other thing, you might not know is they are very soft, a bit easier on the skin then a traditional store bought washcloth.  When folks spend time outdoors their skin needs some extra care.  We supply shelters with these cotton cloths and we supply our friend, Rae who prepares meals on Sat am for those living out in the elements.   They too appreciate these little cotton washcloths.

Many thanks Cindy for your thoughtful and caring donation.  Please, keep up the good work.  Hope to see you here often on Bridge and Beyond helping Ohio's Homeless.

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?
