Knitted Hats, Slippers and Scarves Help the Homeless

 Thank you Phyllis G for this fabulous knitted donation of warm hats and matching scarves, and slippers.  I love the colors you've chosen, as most will work for either men or women.  Everything is so nicely size also.  Each hat and pair of slippers nicely tagged with size as well, though I tucked the tugs under the items for the photo opt.
The style hat is nice and stretchy so will fit a good variety of head sizes.

Thank you Phyllis, please keep up the good work.

Crocheted Diagonal Afghan Donated to the Homeless

Thank you Nikki S for this colorful and cheery afghan.  It's size nice for a child or teen to wrap up and stay warm.  Folks this is crocheted and made on the diagonal with many many different colors.  This was Nikki's first afghan.  How sweet to give away the first item you made.

Please keep up the good work.

Folks this has already been delivered, as I write and schedule to posts, often a couple of weeks in advance so by the time you typically read the post the donated items are already in the hands of those in need.  I almost had to make two deliveries with the volume I had in hand this last time round.  I really had the car packed to the gills which is awesome.  I'm so pleased to see donations picking up again, as our numbers have been lower then other years.

Thank you all, and please keep up the good work.

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?
