  1. Thanks for your response, no certain time, it's an ongoing effort, so do whichever is easiest and cheapest for you, mail all at once vs separate smaller bunches. All are appreciated. PM me when you're ready for a mailing address, thanks bunches. Sandy
  2. Anyone need a home for their hats, scarves, mittens, slippers, or squares? Please consider warming homeless, it's not possible to have to many pairs of helping hands. Thanks Sandy
  3. Though the mitten challenge is over, mittens are still needed it's cold outside. Please pm me for a mailing address if you can help. Details on the blog, many thanks. Needle Arts, I'm hoping to get some additional time come the first of year and maybe then can get involved in the CAL, sounds fun. Thanks for the link Sandy
  4. Still interesting in collecting crocheted or knitted slippers. If you can help these women and children (recently homeless and or battered), please pm me for an address. Details on the blog, many thanks Sandy
  5. Great, many thanks for your offer of help. It is really appreciated. Sandy
  6. I'll explore that a bit, thanks bunches. Appreciate it a lot
  7. Hey Liz, several folks have asked about what pattern you used for the slippers, can you share it? I'd love to use it too. Looks like a good, versatile pattern. Sandy
  8. Sounds like a fun thing to knit or crochet together (virtually) for a week each month. I'll have to swing back by in November, soon to head out of town. Cool idea.
  9. They arrived today and are fabulous!!! Love the variation in sizes, and such cute colors. What pattern did you use? I must have that one. Many thanks! You rock Liz Sandy
  10. I think a stuff sack is a really good idea. Love the picture. Fun color on the left, what bags are those. Yes....your weather in Indiana....like ours, actually you typically get it first; so probably not a good thing for winter unless it has a drop cloth under it. I priced the closed cell foam again at REI and Outdoor Source, the cheapest one I found was $20.00. I did discuss this quite a bit with the person at REI(a co-op outdoor equipment place hubby and I've been members of for going on 40 years), and she thought something sewn to the bottom would be good...if we cut drop clo
  11. Hi Ladies I've spent lots of time over the last couple of days exploring this idea a bit. the article was written in Chico, which is near Sacramento California....and that may be very key to this project. I've spoken to several camping equipment experts from Outdoor Source and REI. Both applaud the IDEA of making something to help homelss. The IDEA could be good IF, it's used in a warm climate, if it's used in a fairly dry climate. It's potential worse then using nothing if used in a cold, wet, damp, climate. Plastic does not wick. Wool wicks and therefore stays dryer longer th
  12. Love your coined word....pur....fect! lol
  13. THANKS, missed your response somehow, appreciate the info. Still time folks to have fun with the mitten throw down, help a homeless person, and possible win some free yarn....win, win, and win situation here.
  14. Will do, am hoping to hear back from my source today. I am most intrigued by this. The idea seems so good, but I want to be sure it's really usable and practical for the intended receiver before forging ahead. I like the suggestion of strapes, and the re-cycle bin too. I've also heard people use the larger garbage bags to make yarn; but part of the point of using the plastic bags is reduce, reuse, and recycle; so I don't want people buying bags for the purpose or even getting extra bags from the store that haven't been used. That goes against my green heart. The idea of collecting b
  15. Having been a camper for years, not in an RV, but in a small tent AND having gone backpacking in the mountains, my gut says the plastic bedrool could be very cold. Plastic doesn't wick, therefore you sweat and get wet and being wet is what makes one cold. I've read this entire thread because I have a homeless charity and wanted to be up to speed on this project. 32 inches is pretty narrow when you consider most homeless are men, men probably need more space then 32 inches. Plastic used as a drop cloth would provide a barrier from wet initially, that part sounds good; but when we us
