Have you looked around the blog lately? If not please do. Information always changes, additional tabs across the top of the blog with item specific information as to size and color requirements, as well as patterns. In addition the working calendar is always being updated for those who like to know what we'll be highlighting each month.

While you're looking around, take time to admire each other's work, and please leave comments; so we know you were here. Remember you do not need to be a blogger to leave comments, simply click the drop down box after typing your comment and select name and url, leave the url space empty. We encourage all to leave comments, even those who are a bit shy...it's easy, give it try.

**Tomorrow we usher in the month of April. Traditionally April is the rainy month and so we will once again highlight Rain Ponchos, and Cotton Washcloths. Washcloths should be sized for adults, can be knitted or crocheted and are distributed between 3 family shelters; as well as those adults living outdoors.**

All donations regardless of size and number are valued. All donations are appreciated, and all donations keep someone warm. We help, one stitch at a time. YOU truly DO make a difference. THANK YOU!

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?
