Donating Socks and Slippers

AnneMarie's done it again! She's such a generous person and she's given so much of herself here on Bridge and Beyond. Thank you once again AnneMarie for all you do. 8 crocheted slippers of various sizes and colors and 18 pairs of always needed and much appreciated socks!

Special kudos for labeling the slippers, love it. It's important folks to do that, label them with the size you made. When things are distributed at the various shelters, it's hard for them to look at something and know whom it will fit. Please always attach and label slippers, and mittens.

Sizing on hats also makes life easier for them, but perhaps a little less of an issue.

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?
