Crocheter from Virginia Helps Ohio's Homeless

Look at what a good friend, and long time supporter, Gail B from Virginia has donated!  A gorgeous afghan in what I believe is a shell stitch...very pretty.  She's donated socks, a cotton washcloth, some plastic containers for the meal prep, some very pretty purple yarn(that you know will get put to good use), and some dishtowels and potholders.  Those dishtowels and pot holders will be awesome for the shelters families and or it their moving out packages when they transition from shelter living to their permanent housing .  Very nice Gail, many thanks!

Please keep up the good work.

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?
