Crocheting in New York to Warm Ohio's Homeless and Others in Need

 Another wonderful donation from our good friend and long time supporter, AnneMarie from New York.  As you can see, she's been very busy crocheting hats, cotton washcloths, scarves, mittens and wrist warmers.  Beautiful variety of colors in her cotton washcloths, and wonderful dark colors in her hats.  She's also included socks, and personal care items, 
including those hand warmers which are huge bonus as the weather has gotten pretty cold and damp at night.  We've had frost, sleet, and nights barely above freezing already.  It's going to be long colder then normal winter according to all the weather men and Farmers Almanac.  

Special thanks AnneMarie for tagging your hats, mittens and writs warmers with size, that saves everyone so much time both here and at the various shelters, as well as those in need.  

Remember you can always click on pictures to see more detail and see items larger, please take a minute to do that to check out the royal blue and gray hats above with cables.  These hats have lots of details and wonderful texture, plus.........the cable somehow make them thicker and therefore I think warmer.  I LOVE the look and feel of these hats.  

As always keep up the good work, AnneMarie.

    Very nice AnnMarie! Love the hats. Really some talent there. Beautiful and warm too. Love the idea of the fingerless gloves and also the colors of the wash cloths. You have been very busy and will be much appreciated by those trying to survive in the cold. Thank you so much for supporting the homelss.Snow in Minnesota yesterday and again this morning.

  2. What a great donation AnnMarie! Your hook has been flying. That was nice you including all those personal items. The handwarmers will sure help to keep lots of hands warmer in the cold weather that is coming. Yes Sandy, I look at the blog posts and have been watching it get higher and higher. It is getting closer and closer to 1500!

  3. Annemarie, these are very nice donations as always. Would it be possible for you to send me the pattern for the hats? It looks very nice. I hope to hear from you soon also. I miss talking to you.

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?
