Donations for Ohio all the way From Germany

Thank you Katie B from Germany for your donation of knitted hats, and cotton washcloths.  Please click to enlarge the picture (which is something you can always do here on the blog) to see the detail in the blue cotton cloth on the left.  Love that design Katie.  What pattern did you use?

Thank you for your on going support of our homeless here in Ohio, we surely appreciate it.

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

**Please avoid the use of white, off-white, tan, and beige in your donations.  Laundry is not often an easy option for those we donate to, so colors that don't show the dirty easily are best.**

Donations: 2012 

Hats 1013+11=1024  (55 more hats then we donated last year)
Scarves: 662  (191 scarves over what we donated last year)
Slippers: 148 (20 over last year)

Misc Items are not counted individually (such as personal care items, headbands, gators, yarn, wrist warmers/fingerless gloves, face-masks, neck warmers, t-shirts, soap, deodorant, shampoo, toothbrushes, hand and foot warmers Teddy Bears and footies etc)

**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?
