New Helping Hands for Ohios Homeless

items for homelessThank you Sara R from Ohio! Sara is our newest pair of helping hands and a fellow Ohioan. Welcome to the group Sara. We're happy to have you join us and to help with the cause of warming the homeless. It's always exciting to get new pairs of helping hands busy making donations. The above hats and scarves are mostly knitted. I love the soft aqua blue set, nice basket weave design, and I love the blue variegated set. Awesome colors. The red, black and gray scarf is crocheted.

Many thanks Sara for joining us, hope to see you often here on Bridge and Beyond.

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?
