Donations Keep People Warm

Guess who donated all these goodies.  Come on...guess.  Bet you're able to tell that it's our good friend and faithful supporter, AnneMarie from New York.  She got the idea last year about these hand and foot warmers....what a great great idea.  In the above donation are 2 dozen pair of socks which you know are always a hit, 10 of the hand and feet warmers that our men living outside in the elements will be thrilled to get, and 27 wonderful cotton washcloths.  I also add some of those to our bag of goods for our Bridge folks, and to distribute others to 3 family shelters.  They LOVE getting those cotton washcloths.  It's an item everyone needs all year long, summer-winter-spring or fall.

Thank you AnneMarie, as always keep up the good work.

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?
