Slippers, and Socks, and Scarves Oh My !

donations for homelessWowzer, another great donation from the hook of Annemarie in New York. 4 wonderful, soft, and large scarves, 2 hats, 3 pairs of slippers, and 12 pairs of socks. Annemarie...you rock!

Thank you, thank you, for your thoughtful donation. Please keep up the good work. By the way, these slippers are the first I've seen like this (I think from memory), what pattern did you use?

Mitten monthly is fast approaching an end, if you're busy knitting and crocheting mittens you still have time.

*Remember to include a note with your donation with your name, address (state), email ady, blog url, facebook profile, RAV profile etc; so I can let you know your donation arrived, get things properly documented. Please review the 3 lists here on the blog. Is a state listed by your name? Still have lots without....please let us know by leaving a comment so we can get states added to the map. You do not need to be a blogger to leave a comment, click name and url and leave url blank. Please do not use anonymous. To aid with unidentified donations a section has been added to the right side bar*

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?
