Colorful Crocheted Donation

Thank you Lori R for this thoughtful donation of crocheted cotton washcloths and hats for our cold homeless folks here in Ohio.  Really like the bright green in the washcloths, it does make me think of Spring.......so very tired of this long, cold winter.........surely Spring will come ...sometime.  Though I fear it's a long way off.  I know the calendar says it's due on March 20th, which is only 16 days away...........but remember our friend Mr. GroundHog...6 wks longer, and really here in central Ohio it is often cold, frosty etc long after that.  But, how nice to see those bright spring colors in the washcloths.

The hats will warm 5 heads, and while I like Spring Colors, I appreciate that you choose nice darker colors for the hats.  Well done, please keep up the good work.

    Thanks Lori for the nice variety of hats and washcloths. Spring is definitely in the air with those green cloths. Like your choice of colors in the hats. The orange one would be my choice.
    48 degrees today in Minnesota. Melting everywhere. I am finally beginning to see my deck. My bird feeders are in the open again and dont have to climb through all the drifts to get to them. It was a tough go this winter. We are loving this hint of spring.
    Thanks again Lori. GOOD JOB.

  2. Lori you did a fantistic job on your hats and cloths! Thank you so much for helping the homeless and working poor of Ohio! Both the hats and cloths look very springy and happy to Me. They will put a smile on many faces! Pleasantly cool here in NJ with a morning temperature of 37 degrees......I'll take it! I can actually see some lawn! Thanks again Lori and 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.
