Warming Hands is Colorful

glovesA warm, and very colorful donation of 10 pairs of mittens here from Patty L from Ohio. (gloves) A good variety of sizes here to warm different sized hands. The kids will love them. Thank you Patty for your thoughtful donation.

This is Day 26 in The Jack Otis Memorial Month. 4 more days folks, you still have time...keep your hooks and needles flying. It's cold and the men are in need.

**Reminder for those knitters and crocheters who furry pets like to lay on your donations, please do your best to remove the dog and cat hair...those lint roller things work well. If your items are washable, washing them in cold water and fluffy dry (I never use hot, even when the label says it's ok), also helps. Additionally, washing items is a great way to soften some of the rougher yarns. This helps all the recipients with allergies, as well as me when I open the boxes. THANKS**

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?
