Knitted Hats for the Homeless, Thank You Marie P.

Thank you Marie P from Tennessee, birth place of my childhood Hero Davy Crockett for these awesome knitted hats.  Marie's knitted a couple of different styles here and a 2nd thank you for tagging them so nicely with the size.  That is so appreciated by the shelters as the separate items to know whom to give them to.

Folks I really need to ask you all to tag your items, hats, mittens, and slippers should all be tagged.  These little white tags on strings work well, but you can also cut  squares of paper and use a safety pin to tag your items.  Another idea is to hold punch your squares and use a piece of yarn to tie the tag onto the item.

Donations need to be removed from plastic bags/ziplock  bags etc so sizes written on those bags doesn't assist the shelters getting things matched up correctly.  Scarves do not need to be sized.  That's something easily looked at to determine whether it's for a child, teen, or adult.

Let me once again encourage EVERYONE to visit, to read, to stay current with the right size, color etc. of items needed.  Changes happen based on need.  Please stay current so you don't spend time making something that doesn't serve our needs.  AND, please don't be shy.  Post comments, take time and cheer each other on and admire each others work.  We all enjoy that.  It is easy, you do not need to be a blogger to leave a comment.

    Thanks Marie for the beautiful hats you knitted. I especially like the blue one. These will make four heads warmer, and even in this early spring i am sure they are needed. I know I still feel the chill and a warm wool hat would be appreciated. GOOD JOB.

  2. These hats look so warm. Nice work.

  3. Marie thanks so much for these great hats.....I love them. Would you mind telling what patterns you used? I would love to try this pattern. Now not only will more folks be warm but they will also be right in fashion too!

  4. Your hats are beautiful and will make four heads much warmer. Is this an easy pattern? Keep up the good work.

  5. I love the hats Marie! Wish I was a better knitter, this looks like a wonderful pattern to make. Thank you for helping the homeless in our central Ohio area.

  6. Very nice hats Marie! Those will help keep more people warm (maybe even this spring, since the last couple of days have had snow flakes in the air).

  7. What beautiful hats, Marie. I like the longer ribbed brim. I might try that on some of my hats next time.

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?
