  4. Cheryl, what a wonderful donation and such a variety of sizes and items. I love all the cheery colors. I think my favorites are the pastel hat and mittens right in the middle of the picture but they are all so beautifully done.

  8. Sandy, you had posted about Cat and Dog hair, and an idea on what to do if you have them. I do have both, what do I need to do to the washcloths to try to get hair out if there is some. I don't see alot there but I still would like to help those who are allergic.

  9. Just roll them with one of those sticky things, or use some tape. The hair comes off pretty easily. We just try to get the bulk off. Thanks for asking.

  10. Throwing things in the dryer to tumble with no heat works pretty well, too. Just check in the filter when you have done this -- you'll be amazed! Sandie, mother of 7 cats who all love to HELP knit

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?
