Donations from California for Ohio's Homeless

Dianne L from California has been busy.  See what I mean?  She's crocheted lots of goodies here from cotton washcloths (love how you fold and tie them, makes such a nice package), scarves, and a variety of hat sizes to fits lots of different sized heads.  AND, thank you thank you Dianne for labeling all the hats with the size.  That is truly appreciated.

Folks, it's a simple thing, but do click to enlarge the picture and see what I mean about how Dianne packages the cotton washcloths.  They look so much more gift like, don't they!  Love the idea.

Please keep up the good work Dianne.

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?
