    THANK YOU KAREN! what a nice selection of hats and scarves. Glad to see the ones specially for the men. Much needed as this long hard winter winds down. Still many days of cold ahead before we reach the summer nights, and even then the evenings are cool enough to need something warm on your head if you are out in the elements. Will be much appreciated I am sure, Thank you for your caring heart. GOOD JOB.

  2. Karen thank you so much for this wonderful donation of hats and scarves! I love the fact that you used many manly colors as the men folk are often forgotten. Thanks so much for using your time talent and resources to help the homeless and working poor! Your kindness will not be forgotten! Keep your hook flying!

  3. Very nice donation Karen of hats & scarves. Your hooks must have been flying for all the hats you made! Love all the different colors that you used.

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?
