Beautiful Bounty from Bunny

knitted items for homelessMany thanks Bunny (Lynda) for donating your beautiful bounty. Bunny's work is always fabulous, soft, and so well made. 6 Knitted hats, 2 scarves (one is a keyhole scarf), hand warmers, and personal care items. Bunny has been one of our longest running supporters here which is so greatly appreciated. Keep up the good work, and MANY THANKS for your on going support.

This is post #499.......can you believe we're that close to hitting 500 posts here on this blog! Very cool, each of those post represents thoughtful donations of knitting, crocheting, looming etc. Thank you all.

**September is Scarf Month, and we're having another contest.
Running til October 8th (1 month), I'll toss names into a hat for everyone who donates a scarf for a teen or adult...male or female. Feeling like we need to bump those numbers a bit and will draw the winning name from the hat and send out another box of yarn. Contests are fun. We've had several fun, productive, and successful contests. Every scarf donated for a teen or adult (at least 5 inches wide and 5 feet or longer please), will qualify. **

  1. Keyhole scarves are THE BEST! I Never think ahead to make the slit when I am knitting and always have a V-8 moment right about bindoff time. Awesome donation Bunny.

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?
