Donations Help the Homeless


Our friend, RoseMarie has crocheted and donated a matching hat and scarf set with her signature decorations.  She's also included some tissues and headbands.  As always, many thanks for your thoughtful donation.  Caring and giving of others is such an awesome thing to do.  Keep up the good work!

A few reminders:
Please avoid novelty yarn, open stitches, the use of white, off-white, and non-washable fibers.
Please work ALL tails in as you knit/crochet instead of leaving them til the end.  You get a nicer result, a more secure result, AND you don't forget to do them and send them on their way with tails .  I have to lay items aside that aren't ready to be donated until I have time to complete the work.
Always, include a note with your name and email address, even if you wish to be anonymous.  I often spend HOURS, even multiple days trying to determine whom you are.  I MUST be able to communicate with the person who donated via email; and properly document the donations.

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?
