New Help from Pennsyslvania

WOOT WOOT folks, we're on a roll.  Another new pair of helping hands.  That always makes me happy to know we're reaching more people out there in internet land AND that so many are willing and able to help us with caring for Ohio's Homeless through our knitted and crocheted donations.  AWESOME!!

The above donation comes from Justin R from the state of Pennsylvania.  Welcome to the group, Justin; we're thrilled to have you join us. 

Justin has crocheted hats, scarves, and fingerless gloves.  You may not be able to tell that's what the smaller items bundled are.  Thanks for tagging them Justin, appreciate it.


Donations: 2012
Hats 737+6=743
Scarves: 487+2=489
Slippers: 144
Shawls: 2
Sweaters& Ponchos: 4
Vest 1
Afghans: 34
Mittens: 278
Squares: 479
Socks: 193
Rain Poncho's 209
Cotton Washcloths 450

Misc Items are not counted individually (such as personal care items, headbands, gators, yarn, wrist warmers/fingerless gloves, face-masks, neck warmers, t-shirts, soap, deodorant, shampoo, toothbrushes, hand and foot warmers Teddy Bears and footies etc)

**Wow, another month has passed us by, it sure goes quickly.  With October ending and November starting tomorrow we switch our highlighted item from mittens to squares.  However, since our numbers for mittens is always low, let's highlight those again this month along with squares.  I still have lots of squares, so if you're trying to decide which item to make, please consider making mittens. **

All donations regardless of size and number are valued. All donations are appreciated, and all donations keep someone warm. We help, one stitch at a time. YOU truly DO make a difference. 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?
