Helping Ohio's Homeless from Virginia

 Thank you Gail B from Virginia for this awesome donation of crocheted kindness to help Ohio's Homeless.  Gail has been a long time supporter.  Gail crochets beautifully.  Look at the nice variety of hat colors and sizes and scarves she crafted with her skilled hands.
 I love how nice and big your scarves are.  People can truly wrap the scarf around more then once which so adds to the warmth.  And, who doesn't love the Buckeye Scarf!  After all, we here in Ohio bleed scarlet and gray.
Gail thank you for taking the time to add sizes to your hats.  I very much appreciate it and know the folks at the shelters do too. She's also included some personal care items. 

 Please keep up the good work.

Please avoid using white, tan, beige and in general pastels
Please always tag your hats, slippers, and mittens with size
Please launder your items if you have furry friends who like to sit on your crafted items, plus it softens them up and gives a more finished look.
Please include a note in your box with your name and email address

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?
