Boxes of Donations for those in Need


 Here's Box #1 from a good friend, Annemarie from New York.  Hats, scarves, chapsticks, razors, and heat packs.  You know how what a wonderful donation this is.  Heat packs will help warm hands and feet of those out in the elements.  And dry cracked lips hurt, so chapstick is fabulous too.  Thank you Annemarie for all you do.
 Here's the goods from box #2, more scarves, some slippers, and an awesome sweater!
 I paired one of the scarves in this close up of the sweater so you could see how awesome it is.  I bagged it this way as well when I delivered this sweater and scarf to Homeless Families Foundation the other day.  A fabulous donation, as always Annemarie, many many thanks.

**Reminder to please remove hair from your donations (both pet and human) with a lint brush/roller or launder if it's excessive**

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?
