New Helping Hands for Ohio's Homeless

Please welcome Sue F from Ohio, our newest pair of helping hands. Many thanks Sue for your first donation here, and may there many more! Sue's above donation includes both knitted and crocheted goodies to warm our folks in need. The hats (10), and the scarves (8) are a variety of sizes and colors.


*****Please avoid open and lacy stitches, if you can see your hand through the item, and or poke your finger through...it's too lacy and not warm enough. *****

I'm happy to report that I've received emails inquiries from some more folks wanting to help and that the news of our cause is in fact spreading. Thank you to all who've helped in that effort with mouth to mouth referrals, facebook posts, tweets, and or posts on blogs and craft forums such as Rav, Crochetville, and The Hive. Please keep up the good work. It's not possible to have too much help. The more help we obtain the more people we can help, the further we can spread our arms.

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?
