Hats and Scarves Essentials for Ohio's Homeless

 Crocheted hats and scarves from our long time friend and fabulous supported Gail B. from Virginia.  Gail B. is a member over at Crochetville, you might know her from there as well.  I love the nice manly solid colors....always a first choice for men we care for through the various shelters and Rae who hand deliveries items when she prepares hot meals for those living out in the element. 

AND, special thanks Gail for tagging your hats with size.  I'm trying hard to get EVERYONE to do that, it's important to know what size you all make so I know where the items should be donated.  I really can't try every hat on and quess, so please, please, pretty please tag all your hats, your slippers, and your mittens with the size you knitted or crocheted.

Thank you Gail and please keep up the good work, I know Ohio's Homeless appreciate YOU.

  2. Gail I also LOVE your manly colors! Unfortunately I don't think we think of our men folk enough and I am guilty of that also. Bright colors are so fun to work with. I must try to remember next time I purchase more yarn. Thank you Gail and keep your hook flying!

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?
