Donations of Hats and Scarves

Thank you Barbara F from New York for this thoughtful donation of hats and scarves.  The hats are a nice variety of sizes and the scarves are circle scarves/mobious style.  Heads and necks will be warmer now.  So happy to have you're on going support, please keep up the good work.

Folks did you know Barbara has many talents?  She does, she makes soap, jewelry, lotion bars, and paints shells!  Check it out HERE. 

Please avoid open airy stitches, we're after warmth and durability.  One way to avoid open stitches is to downsize your needles and hooks.  You can also double up with yarn...which is particularly good when making slippers for both the warmth and durability.  If you can poke your fingers through the stitches easily...it's too open and lacy. 

Find us, join us, like us on Facebook.

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?
