Round and Round We Go

 Thank you Sue F from Ohio for your thoughtful and generous donation.  So nice to hear from you again.  Lots of knitted warm goodies here folks.  She's knitted some nice thick and warm slippers, scarves, and a Baclava. (gonna count the Baclava with the hats)
 She's knitted and donated 2 round afghans.  Both are very colorful.  Got them folded in half. 
 And a nice thick...maybe double strands colorful stripes afghan.  I love all the pretty cheery colors, Sue F.  I've never made a round afghan, but know they've become pretty popular to make by what I see on Ravelry.  Thank you Sue, and please keep up the good work.

**WOOT WOOT, with your 3 afghans, we've now matched last years totals**

Just one more post 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 1051+1=1052  (83 more hats then we donated last year)
Scarves: 663+3=666  (195 scarves over what we donated last year)
Slippers: 148+5=153 (25 over 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?
