Frosty Morning Relief from Friends

Day 8 of Jack Otis Memorial Month

items for homelessAs of the writing of this scheduled post, it's 28 degrees, which is 4 degrees below freezing folks! This is the 2nd or 3rd morning I've noted the night temps have dipped below that cold freezing mark. It's close to 9 AM and it's not yet warmed up. White cold frost is still covering everything I can see from my windows. I'm sipping hot coffee and have a fleece on here in the house, as I wait for the house to warm up with the aid of the furnace. It's cold! I'm cold and I have the bounty of a roof over my head. Not so with the homeless who live outdoors.

Thank goodness for friends like you big hearted knitted, crocheters, and loomers. You all make such a difference. Above donation comes from our friend and fellow Ohioan, Cindy B. Lots of person care items (soap, combs, toothbrushes, toothpaste, toothbrush holders); which are always in need. Our Bridge folks and the shelters will be thrilled to get these items. Additionally, Cindy has donated 10 pairs of gloves and 50 hats. The colors of the hats didn't show up well in the picture. I stacked them by color. There's a group of black, navy, dark charcoal gray, light gray, and dark olive green.

Thank you Cindy for your thoughtful donation. The young boys/teens at the family shelters will be happy to receive them.

**Remember to leave tails when changing yarn and work your ends in, do not tie a knot and cut**

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?
