Taking Time to Help Those in Need, Priceless

Here's a wonderful donation from our good friend AnneMarie from New York.  AnneMarie hook's been busy making cotton washcloths, hats, and slippers.  Love the slippers Gail, what pattern did you use?  Love to add it to the slipper tab.  RoseMarie and I were just chatting the other day about a single crocheted vs double crocheted slipper as a means of making the slipper warmer and more sturdy.  Special thanks for tagging your hats and slippers with size!

AnneMarie also sent 2 dozen socks for both men and women, razors and forks.  Rae will be thrilled to have those items to help those she feeds that live outdoors!

Many thanks AnneMarie and please keep up the good work!

Busy hands are happy hands, and happy hands help people in need, thank you all for your on going support.  So many of you give so willing of your time and talents, I thank you all.

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?
