Hats, and Scarves and More for the Homeless

3 wonderful hats, and nice warm scarf and 4 cotton washcloths donated by Linda J from Texas. This is Linda's 2nd donation, though I still do not have an email addy for you Linda. PLEASE make contact by leaving a comment here, or emailing me at sandycrochet@gmail.com. I've looked high and low for you here on line and really need to have you make contact. Her donation included both knitted and crocheted items.

She's included some squares, these are wool. Linda I do have a few wool squares (plus yours from before) that will probably make 1 afghan. I really need to remind everyone that while I appreciate the donation, I really need squares to ONLY be washable acrylic or washable wool. The folks we donate to don't have means for drycleaning.

Various knitted squares, some sampler style and some corner to corner. Again I want to thank you for the donations, but would like to remind everyone that squares should only be mailed at the scheduled times. Please read details in the square tab above before knitting, crocheting, and mailing squares. Please and thanks!

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?
