Winning Yarn and Warming the Homeless

crocheted hat and scarf setYou might remember reading a while back that our long time supporter, Sandie won the blog contest we had to celebrate our 200th post. She won yarn naturally. And this wonderful, warm, and very pretty tan tweedy matching crocheted scarf and hat set is made from some of the yarn Sandie won. Someone is going to be not only warm but styling wearing this! As always Sandie's items are beautifully made. Many thanks Sandie for your thoughtful donation.

And, I'm heading out today to buy more socks, many thanks for including money to help with that. It is very much appreciated.

We've had to move from just shutting the windows to turning on the heat now folks, so please kick your knitting needles and crochet hooks into high gear. We've had a couple of below 40 degree nights. That's pretty chilly when you're without a roof over your heads.

  4. I loved that yarn too, think I had several different colors of that type. Haven't seen it in a while, wonder if they no longer make it?

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?
