New Help for Ohio's Homeless from The Sunshine State

Not much need for warm muffler/scarves and hats in sunny always warm Florida. So our new friend, Sandra R. has put her helping hands to helping us here in Ohio care for our cold in need. Thank you Sandra R, we appreciate your efforts. Click to see the picture larger folks so you can see the cute hats with ear muffs and matching mitts!

Most of her donation is knitted, though there are a few pieces crocheted. Thank you and keep up the good work, Sandra R. We have quite a few Sandy's, Sandie's, and Sandra's here in our group....so ladies if you would always use your last initial and or tell me what state you're from. That would be helpful.

As the weather has already dipped below 60 so you can tell we'll be needing these warm items in very short order. Hope everyone who gave their hooks and needles a bit of rest during the summer months put them back to work, SOON!

With the increase in new members, I need to ask everyone to please read the tabs regarding size, colors, yarn types etc. 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?
