  1. WooHooooo! Now that's a heck of a milestone - congratulations and thanks to everyone who contributed and to Sandy for inspiring, receiving and coordinating that whopping amount of love and warmth! It is near-blizzard conditions here in southeast Ohio this morning with wind blowing the snow horizontally. It is on mornings like this that our neighbors who are homeless are most vulnerable. Sandy what you and the many contributors do here @ the Blog is so meaningful and important - thank you all for your many hours of work and for making our world a little bit better and warmer.

  2. Thank you psmflowerlady for your wonderful and kind comment. Right you are it's miserable outside today. I'm sitting here with a fleece on trying to stay warm indoors, so every pair of mittens, hat, and scarf is needed and very much appreciated.

  3. WOO-HOO!We reached those big number goals! Look at the hat and scarf numbers, folks! What a great group we are! I am sure all those folks in Ohio are appreciating all our efforts! And thank you , Sandy, for being such an inspiration and also so faithful!

  4. Wonderful!! Over the top of the goal! Great job ladies. It is cold & a bit of snow on the ground in TN also today. I have been busy working on a scarf.

  5. Thanks Sally and SSeger for keeping up with our numbers. I'm pretty over the top with excitement.

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?
