Colorful Donation from Wisconsin aids Ohio's Needy

Thank you Sue VK from Wisconsin for this awesome, and very colorful donation.  Sue has donated 79 squares which will become fabulous afghans for our friends at Homeless Families Foundation for Project Welcome Home, 5 warm soft knitted hats to keep people warm, and 21 pretty cotton washcloths.  Well done Sue VK.

 Sue if you have a Facebook or Ravelry profile page, please let me know so I can switch the list you're on.  It's helpful.
**Folks, please remember to pair your mittens and slippers, and please tag hats, mittens, and slippers with size.  A tag attached right to the item is best as the volunteers who receive these items at the other end can them get them to the right group.  Additionally, they are often separated on shelves to distribute by size, so it's best not to tag a bag that says all hats are medium.  They'll be removed from the bags, please tag each item with size.**


This is post 893, wow only 7 more until we hit yet another milestone.  900 Blog post will be here before we know it!  Thanks to all that make that possible.  The more blogs equates to more donations....Awesome

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?
