Warming Homeless Heads

crocheted hats for homeless10 Fabulous crocheted hats to warm the heads of 10 more homeless. Thank you so much for your thoughtful donation, Robbie. It is so very much appreciated. These hats are made with single crochet back loop making a nice ribbing effect. Hats are all nicely sized and will fit a variety of heads which is awesome. The ribbing allows the hats to be pretty stretchy.

The weather continues to drop so all items are truly needed. Many thanks to all for knitting, crocheting, and looming. Many thanks to all who blog about us, tell their co-workers about us, or who post our badge somewhere. You can now print off a paper flyer to post at work, school, church or your local library....or anywhere people gather. Please help us spread the word. The more helping hands we're able to find, the more homeless men, women, and children we can warm and give hope to. Flyer is available by clicking on tab in the top of the blog.

We're still collecting mittens for our mitten throw down, so keep'em coming. Check out patterns also available in tabs across the top of the blog.

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?
