These hats have already been delivered and are no doubt already putting a smile on 5 grateful people's faces.

Donation from Team in Puerto Rico

 Thank you DaMaris and your friend Nancy for this thoughtful and generous donation of knitted goodies.  DaMaris donates all the way from Puerto Rico which I think is pretty special.  She's encouraged her friend Nancy to join in.  Awesome team work from both ladies.  Welcome Nancy, thrilled to have you join us.  These hats are nicely tagged with sized.....another item that gets me excited.  Hats and scarves are loomed.  Love the nice double thickness scarves..
Also, such nice sized scarves for wrapping up and being warm.  Nice dark colors too!  

Many thanks DaMaris for recruiting more helping hands!  Hope to see both you and Nancy here on Bridge and Beyond often.  Keep up the good work, Ladies.

Crocheting for the Homeless

 Sorry this picture is so dark folks one of the last one I tried to take just before the warning on my camera said the battery was exhausted.  The booties/slippers in the upper left corner are a pretty dark purple which is hard to see in this picture.  Many thanks to our good friend Barbara F for this thoughtful donation of crocheted slippers, hats, and cotton wash cloths.
 AND.......personal care, more pretty crocheted cotton washcloths and a scarf for our homeless and those in need here in Central Ohio.  LOVE the blue green cotton, reminds me of the beach which sounds really nice right now with frosty cold nights.
Barbara is very generous with her time and talent, more lovely hats!  And all so nicely tagged with sized.  Special thanks for that Barbara, please keep up the good work.  We're thrilled to have your support here on Bridge and Beyond.

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?
