Knitted Hats will warm the Homeless

Six awesome knitted hats from our friend Marie P being donated.  They're so nicely made, warm, soft, and stretchy.  Thank you for your on going support of our cause, it's much appreciated.  Special thanks for the wonderful tagging you've done.  Folks, if you've not done previously, please do so with your next donation.
Sizing is an issue.  So labeling them helps them reach the right group of people easier and quicker.  You know what size you made based on your pattern, or simply what size you intended to make; but it's not always that easy for the person at the other end to know if it should be for a teen or adult etc.  So, many thanks to those who've started tagging.  These tags with string work really well.

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?
