Hats to Keep Homeless Heads Warm


 Thank you Cheryl S from Florida.  Cheryl and I go way back, to high school days; soooooo you see she's a transplanted Buckeye.  Awesome that you sent along some Buckeye Hats!  Fourteen more heads will be warm.  Thanks so much, and keep up the good work.

Just a few more posts before we close out the numbers for our donations for the year 2012.  Please keep checking in folks.

January's focus is Slippers....let's see if we can keep some feet warm with slippers.  Please check the slipper tab for necessary information regarding sizing, colors, and fibers.  AND there's several patterns there you might like to try.

Donations: 2012 

Hats 1037+14=1051  (82 more hats then we donated last year)
Scarves: 663  (192 scarves over what we donated last year)
Slippers: 148 (20 over last year)
Sweaters, Ponchos, Shawls, vests:10
Afghans: 52  (3 short of last year)
Mittens: 300 (42 more then last year)
Squares: 966 (114 more then last year)
Socks: 281 (52 less pairs then last year)
Rain Poncho's 213 (3 less then last year)
Cotton Washcloths 577 (288 more donated then 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?
