Donations from New York will Warm Ohio's Homeless

Thank you Barbara F from New York for this thoughtful and colorful crocheted donation of hats, scarves, headbands, and slippers.  Very nice.  I particularly like the color combination of the orange hat; and the slippers are made with double thickness yarn something I'm really in favor of.  The double yarn makes them obviously warmer, thicker, and more durable!

Please keep up the good work.

Have you joined the facebook group yet?  If not, please do.  I post daily there the names of those who've sent boxes as my friendly mail carrier delivers them, and always a link to the post here of the day.  We're working hard to attract more helping hands.  Help us spread the word.

    Barbara, anything orange seems to grab me this year, so i am loving this collection. Maybe just tired of winter and ready for spring :+). In any event, beautiful donation. Many beautiful and useful items. 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?
