Yarn for Ohio's Homeless

 LOOK, more yarn from our good friends Dianne and her mother Mary.  I've posted the fun story about our meeting up in a parking lot for the infamous "yarn drop".  If you missed the story, click HERE (plus you can more pictures of their generosity). 
You can see Mary stored her yarn in all types of containers, from boxes, to bags, to fun tin cans.  Yarn for so many projects, all to benefit the cold and needy in Central Ohio.

 Looks like Mary had started a Christmas project here with the red, white, and green.  But, the strip....which I believe was an afghan start is raveled in the middle, so I'll probably unravel this section to put the yarn to use in other projects.
AND.............drum roll, here's the last group of yarn.  Picture #10.  WOW, wow, and WOW.

Many thanks again Dianne and Mary, we truly appreciate you.

    Awesome Mary and Dianne. lLooks like the corner of my computer room where I store my containers of yarn. Not quite this much obviously,, but your various containers remind me of my own.:+) Just pulled out a big halloween container this morning to see what was in there and guess what? YARN
    Anyway, again thank you. This was something to see, and your thoughtfulness cannot be measured. You are indeed a friend of the homeless.

  2. WOW and more WOW! Very nice Mary and Dianne to donate all that yarn to Bridge & Beyond! So many nice colors.

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?
