Warm Donations for the Homeless

Wonderful donation from our friend, Dorothy M. from Virginia.  Nice warm mittens in a variety of sizes and colors.

 AND clapping because they're nicely labeled with size.  This is something I'm asking everyone to do, please.  I try on mittens, and hold up stretch and try on some hats to try and determine size, to determine which bag they should go into in order to get to the right person/organization.  I honestly can't try on everything, nor is that method the best option.  Anytime I have to take additional time here, it delays your wonderful items getting to those in need.  Nothing fancy is needed.  These are nice little white tags that can be purchased very inexpensively.  Notes are hand written which is fine.  You save me huge amount of time, as well as the shelters at the other end.  Please label and pair mittens, slippers.  Label hats.  Scarves aren't an issue.  I don't know what size you made, but you know by what pattern you followed, or by what you intended to make.


**Reminders:
Please stay current with size, color, and fiber requirements by reading the tabs across the top of the blog BEFORE you take time to knit/crochet and mail items.
Please always work in your tails, as you go
PLEASE PLEASE, do not send any donations without a note with your name and email addy.  I sometimes spend hours trying to figure out who someone is.
Please keep furry friends at bay and or launder your items before mailing and avoid spraying with perfumes, so many of us have allergies.

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?
