Crocheted Donatation from Military Base in Germany

A donation all the way from Germany! Our good friend Katie B has done it again with this wonderful thoughtful crocheted donation of 7 scarves, a pair of mittens, 5 hats, and 4 cotton washcloths! Wow, all the way from a military base in Germany!! Many many thanks Katie. We're thrilled to have your special help. Please keep up the good work.

I'll be telling you about several fun numbers to report/milestone if you will, in the up coming posts. Today, this post you're reading is our 700th post! Folks that's super exciting to me and hopefully it is to you as well. Very few of those posts contain something other then good news. These posts written, scheduled appear daily (less often in our early days), represent the good work you've all done with your crochet hooks, your knitting needles, and your knitting looms. These post reflect how big hearted, kind, and caring you all are to take your time, your talent to knit and crochet...then to box it up and pay postage to donate your items to those in need. Men, Women, and Children in desperate circumstances, some living on the streets, some in temporary situations in shelters. Keep up the good work and please join me in being please we've hit another milestone. 700 blog post.

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?
