Tipping my Hat

Wave hello to our newest pairs of helping hands from Florida. Barbie T and Gesher H and many others in a local chapter gather together and knit and crochet for the benefit of others. It's not necessarily the same group of ladies each time or the same number; but many pairs of helping hands have joined together to make this donation of 56 happen. Many sizes, colors, and styles. Some are knit and some are crocheted. 2 Full boxes of hats to warm the heads of those in need here in Central Ohio.
We're thrilled to have you ladies join us and appreciate the extra helping hands. Hope to see you all here often on Bridge and Beyond. The weather here in Central Ohio has already begun to get uncomfortable. We're soon to have frost, as it got down to 46 degrees last night. That can be pretty cold when you're living out in the elements or in a temporary shelter that may not have good heat etc. Hats are always a huge help and are needed by Men, Women, and Children.

Thank you Ladies in Boyton Beach Florida!

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?
