Hats and Scarves for Ohio's Homeless

Crocheted hats and scarves from Marie Anne include a very pretty matching green set.  Click the picture to enlarge so you can the detail/texture in the green hat.  Very nice.  Many thanks Marie Anne for your continued support of our cause, we surely appreciate your hard work.

Marie Anne has started a facebook group to collect 6 inch squares to assemble into afghans for the grieving families from Sandy Hook.  If you're able to help her with making squares and or assembling afghans, please check out the details here.  Such a sad situation.

**Edited on Dec 28th...please hold making squares for above Facebook Group.  The future of the group is unknown, as Sandy Hook has asked that people please stop sending gifts.  How wonderful it is they've received more then they can handle.  Shows how caring everyone is.  **

**If you're making and donating an afghan for Bridge and Beyond, please remember to launder and block....it really finishes them.  They lay nicer, are softer, and you're able to remove hair and oils when you launder.  You truly can block acrylic.  I wash in cold and delicate and when I lay them out to dry, shape them.  Sometimes you need a tug here and then to even up the edges**

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?
