Sunshine and Knitting Donated from Florida to Ohio




Thank you Sandra R from Florida for this awesome donation of knitted goodies.  AND for including the extra sunshine both are appreciated.  Folks we've had some dreary days so getting good pictures is becoming difficult.  Please click to enlarge so you can see all the wonderful things Sandra knitted and donated for our Ohio Homeless and others in need.  Mittens of varying sizes and colors always makes me clap...special thanks!  Lots of hats to fit lots of different sized heads.  Great color selection too.

Thank you Sandra for tagging all your goodies with size, well done indeed.

She's also included cowls plus a picture of how they can be worn.  Awesome idea.  Do check this out folks.  Cowls, gators, neck warmers...I never quite know what to call them, or if they are the same or different?  But, wanted you to see what she enclosed so took an additional picture.

Sandra knitted six of these.  I tried one one to get the idea...awesome.  I think I'm going to make a few copies to send along and to explain to the folks at the shelters so they know to tell folks they can wear them that way.  I'm not sure if they would know?  Have you all seen this idea?

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?
