Matching Crocheted Hat and Scarf Donated

Thank you Victoria P for this matching crocheted hat and scarf set!  This will be so appreciated by the person it keeps warm.  Our temps here have been well below average and many people are in need of warm items.  Got another request just yesterday from the Holy Family Soup Kitchen.  We just recently made a delivery there, which they were thrilled to get; but indicated they really are in need of more.

For those new to the blog, or perhaps folks who've not read about Holy Family before.  They feed thousands of people each and every week and pass out our warm items to those waiting for a hot meal.  Sometimes it's men, sometimes it's women, and sometimes it's whole families in need.  Currently, the largest need is for men.

Thank you Victoria, please keep up the good work.

  2. Thank you Victoria for this cozy donation! I know someone will feel mighty lucky to receive it at this very cold time. It has been colder than normal here in NJ too. This recipient will feel much warmer and in style right at the same time! Thanks so much for helping those less fortunate! 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?
