Hurrah for Hats for the Homeless

knitted hatsThank you Pauline B from Ohio! Pauline is our newest pair of helping hands, and look at the wonderful hats she's knitted! The black hats are nice and stretchy which is good for our men. She also has a nice big brim which can be pulled down for adding warmth if need be. Look at the cool design in the striped rounded blue and black hat. Click to enlarge so you can see the detail. I love the look! Very cool Pauline. What stitch or pattern did you use?

Cool nights and early mornings are beginning to be the norm here in Central Ohio........sigh, that means summer is soon to come to an end. The wonderful warm hats, scarves, etc you all have been busy making will very soon be needed. So keep up the good work with those busy helping hands. Welcome Pauline, we're thrilled to have you join us.
Thank you all for your caring.

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?
