Knitting and Crocheting and Donating for the Homeless

 Lovely warm knitted slippers, and wrists warmers and crocheted mittens from our friend Joyce B.  A few posts back you saw another part of her recent donation that she dropped off for me while in town to support to her family involved in The Marathon.  What a wonderful and thoughtful donation of goodies for Ohio's homeless and others in need.  Many thanks Joyce for all your hard work.  Extra thanks for tagging your slippers etc with size for us.  I hope you and your family enjoyed your time here in town.
You can see, Joyce has truly been busy.  Here's more!  Lovely cotton washcloths, knitted in many colors and styles.  Awesome and always so very much appreciated.

Keep up the good work and let us know how your family fared in the marathon.

  1. Very nice Joyce. Lots of different items to warm the homeless. We are getting our first Hard freeze here tonight and tomorrow. These items will help in the fight against the cold. Thank you again for your large donation. I worked yesterday with a group making hats for the Indian Children in Northern Minnesota. Everyone is getting into the act. So many need our help.GOD BLESS THE HOMELESS.

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?
