Donations from Texas Help Ohioans Keep Warm

4 Crocheted scarves from Linda J. from Texas.  Many thanks Linda for your thoughtful donation.  4 People will be warmer.  You asked in your note accompanying your donation if we collected cotton dishcloths all year long...we collect cotton washcloths all year long.  Believe most of the time they are used with the personal care contributions vs dishcloths; but probably also for dishes when packed in the moving out kits from the various shelters.  There's a tab labeled cotton cloths that any updates will be posted to.

Thank you for your support.

**Reminder for those donating afghans, be sure and launder and block your afghans.**

**I will continue to add numbers to the years totals after Dec 31st, so all donations received by years end will be counted in the year they are received.  Since each donation is a day, they will be some over flow into January.  Thus year end numbers won't be finalized until then.*

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?
