Congratulations on a Personal Challenge that Helps Others!

crocheted hats for homelessHATS, Hats, HATS and more. Count them if you can. 40 fabulous hearts of various sizes and colors crocheted by Yarn Yokel, someone I've gotten to know from The Hive. Congratulations Yarn Yokel (Jason) for completing your wonderful personal challenge. He challenged himself to make 40 hats. This is wonderful way for a win win situation. He wins because he's set and accomplished a goal. A fabulous goal at that, one all about helping others. The 2nd part of the win win is the 40 people who will receive his hats and be warmed by the thoughtfulness it took to make them as well as the yarn that's keeping them warmer.

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?
