Drum roll for a new member, LOOK!


Shelly, one of our newest members...some darling hats arrived yesterday. Work schedule prevented me from getting the photo done and posted. Sorry folks. She sent a nice variety of sizes. Some are for wee ones, some for youths, and I think one looks good for a teen with another that will work for adult. YIPPEE.

I'm super excited that we're off to such a good start for this fall and the coming season.

Got an email that tells me scarves on are in route from Karen (more on that tomorrow), as well as more goodies from Sandie (who keeps giving and giving), and we have 2 additional team members. A couple, husband and wife I'll introduce tomorrow. Please stayed tuned. (this is piece meal, having some issues with picture and compatibility folks that coupled with my longer than normal work week are delaying things a bit.).

Many thanks Shelly! (9 hats)

I've decided to eliminate our goals, which began in our first year.  As hats, scarves, and mittens will be appreciated.  All are needed and will be used for the homeless folks under the bridge and or the free clinic based upon need/appropriateness.

**new totals
Hats 187
Mittens 43 pairs

  3. Nice job by Shelley here. Something for the younger set. I remember when I first started making hats for men. I couldn't believe anyone could fit a hat that large (as the pattern said to make it). Then I had my husband try it on and it was almost too small! That's when I decided I needed "models" for my hats. It's not unheard of for me to make use of my live models as well as my plastic ones. :)

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?
