A Bakers Dozen

I may be aging myself when I use the expression a Bakers Dozen...but, used to be when you ordered a dozen of something from your local bakery/baker he or she threw in an extra one...13 a bakers dozen.  Not a term you hear much these days...and I can't remember when any threw in an extra something for free.  But, I couldn't help but think of that when I counted the above donation from Karen S, fellow Ohioan.  She sent a bakers dozen of hats and cotton washcloths!  Thank you so much for your thoughtful donation Karen.  Both the crocheted hats and crocheted cotton wash cloths are a great donation; plus you've added 16 pairs of socks......nothing better then warm dry feet!

I love your hat styles with these nice brims...can to share your pattern?  EXTRA Thank You's for tagging all your hats with size, that always makes me smile.  Karen is our newest pair of helping hands.  Thrilled to have you join us Karen and look forward to seeing you here often on Bridge and Beyond.

Gear up your hooks and needles folks, it's time to knit and crochet and donate to help those less fortunate then you.

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?
