Knitted Hats and Slippers Donated

Keeping warm from the tips of their toes to the top of their heads. Many thanks Trudy S for this nice donation of 3 knitted hats and a pair of knitted slippers. We appreciate your on going support of our cold homeless here in Central Ohio.

Weather may be starting to improve in many of your locals, but even as weather starts to improve during the day, it's still cold and damp at night when you're living in the elements...so please keep your fingers busy with yarn crafting wonderful knitted and crocheted items to warm Ohio's homeless and others in need. We maybe cool and wear a hat outside, once indoors with the heat on, we're able to remove it; that's not necessarily the case for many people. We do, knit and crochet and collect items all year long. They are used and very much needed about 9 months of the year. The other 3 months we're still busy stock piling to not be caught off guard when those in need feel the changes in weather so much more then we do with a roof over our heads.

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?
