Unknown Crocheter in St. Louis Donates to help Ohioans

This donations of hats and scarves comes from an UNKNOWN Crocheter from St. Louis.  That's what was listed on the mailing label.  A variety of colors in both hats and scarves, as well as sizes.  We're always happy to have new helping hands for our cause.  I'm ok with someone wanting to be anonymous here on the blog; however for my records I truly do need to know from whom the donations come from.  That's why I work so hard trying to find people through Rav, Facebook, my emails, blogs etc when I get a donation I can't match up.  It's important, I know I sound like a record here on replay....that even if you wish to be anonymous here on the blog, YOU MUST include a note with your name and your email address with your donation.  Simply state on the note you wish to be anonymous on the blog.

So...please unknown crocheter from St. Louis, if you're out there reading this blog post, send me an email, and remember to include your name and email in your next donation.

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?
