Socks are so Important!

socksWe never have too many pairs of socks. Socks, store bought socks (primarily for men) are needed all year long. Cold, wet feet are a problem even in warmer months when you live outdoors in the elements. Thank you Patty L from Ohio for your donation. It's very much appreciated, truly.

Socks are important, and they will be the next month's feature. March will be Sock it to Me Month, for folks who like to plan a bit ahead. I'll probably make us a button/badge etc later so the feature is clearly seen on the blog. So, keep an eye peeled.

Sock it to Me Month following Toasty Tootsie's seemed to be so appropriate. Our feet do so much for us they deserve lots of attention. Why are feet so important you might ask yourself. What can you do, where can you go that your feet don't carry you? How much do you hurt all over if your feet hurt? How cold are you all over if your feet are wet and cold? Having a warm, dry pair of socks on can be very beneficially and help to keep one healthy. So, we do ask for and collect socks all year long, Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter.

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?
