Hats, HATS and Hats!!!

 Thank you Patty C for this very generous donation of crocheted hats.  Hats in lots of different colors, and sizes to warm many heads in need.  Thank you also for tagging them with size.  When I open a donation that's tagged it always makes me smile.
Patty also crocheted and donated scarves which makes matches sets!  Nice work Patty, thank you for your caring heart.  You are greatly appreciated.

Please keep up the good work!



*Folks please remember not to knot and cut with knitted or crocheted items.  Knots are always the weakest link in any garment or project.  Always leave tails when changing colors or adding yarn and work in your tails to avoid raveling.**

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?
