Warm Dry Feet, so very Important

Our good friend Annemarie from New York has done it again.  72 pairs of socks....awesome, I was concerned our sock number was so much lower then last year...this is wonderful.  72 pairs of warmer, dryer feet.  ANd 33 of those chemical hot packs to aid in their fight to stay warm.  The hot packs are good for ones pockets, under ones blanket if living outside; as well as good for those waiting on the bus while the various family shelters aid them in finding jobs, and housing. 

2013 working calendar is not yet posted, but our focus for January will be slippers.  Please see slipper tab.

**Have you checked which list you're on lately?  If not please do.  Love to do updates.  For example you may be listed under the tab those who don't blog and or have a Facebook profile page etc...but, since you're first donation now you have a Facebook, or Ravelry profile page, and or you've started a blog.  If so, please let me know so I can update our lists.

Donations: 2012 

Hats 999  (30 more hats then we donated last year)
Scarves: 635  (165 scarves over what we donated last year)
Slippers: 148 (20 over last year)
Sweaters, Ponchos, Shawls, vests:9
Afghans: 51  (4 short of last year)

**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.*


All donations regardless of size and number are valued. All donations are appreciated, and all donations keep someone warm. We help, one stitch at a time. YOU truly DO make a difference. THANK YOU!

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?
