Potpourri of Warmth for Ohio's Homeless

hand made items for homelessThank you Kathy for your potpourri of knitting and crocheting. Kathy had delivered 8 squares, 10 headbands/earwarmers, 9 hats, and 3 scarves. Kathy is our newest pair of helping hands. YIPPEE, love getting more helping hands. Kathy and I became acquainted through Facebook. In doing so we discovered not only is she a fellow Ohioan; but she lives in a small town where I lived in my early childhool. How's that for a small world folks? She and I were able to meet face to face which is always fun. We had a nice lunch while getting to know each other a bit better. Look forward to doing that again, and look forward to more warm goodies for our homeless and those in need off her hook and or knitting needles.

Having new helping hands is good, having a face to face meeting with a new friend is awesome! From memory, I believe this is the 3rd time I've gotten to meet someone in person who was donating after first meeting them here on the blog, or in a group on RAV or similiar type on line group.

Making headway folks with identifying where everyone is from, but still working on it. Please check the lists (both with and without blogs), to see if I have the state your from listed. If it's not listed by your name I can't add it to the map. Creeping forward on that, knowing this is a scheduled post (as they all are in que), as of the writing of this post 24 states are listed on the map giving us a 48% of the country. And you'll also note we have friends abroad in addition to that.

Please read about Sock it to Me in the sidebar. It's our March focus.

Scarves 103+3=106
Hats 180+9=189
Mittens (gloves)56
Socks 41
Slippers 10
Ghans 11
Squares 171+8=179
Sweaters 5

Please remember all donations regardless of size and number are valued. All donations are appreciated, and all donations keep someone warm. We help, one stitch at a time. It truly DOES make a difference. THANK YOU!

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?
