Thank You Wendy for your Dedication

Thank you Wendy for your dedication and on going support of our cause. Look at his wonderful donation from Wendy's crochet hook. 3 hats, 3 scarves, and 4 awesome cotton washcloths. All items are so very much appreciated. I'm particularly fond of the greyish-pinkish washcloth. Isn't that an interesting blend? You just never know what variegated yarns are going to look like and it's always fun to see the end result.

We've had some cool nights already here in Central Ohio. I dread even thinking about. Nights where we've added a blanket to the bed already. When you're living outdoors or in shelters you're comfort is so subject to the weather. This reminds me how important it is for us to keep our hooks and needles busy all year long and keep our shelters well stocked so as soon as the weather turns...they are prepared to help those who need help.

Thank you all for thoughtfulness.

  1. What a wonderful donation Wendy. I am also particulary fond of varigated yarns. It is like recreating something in addition to what you started. Take care!

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?
