Knitting Aids the Homeless

 Thank you thank you Joyce B.  This post concludes the very generous donation Joyce delivered to when she was here in town to support her family's participation in the Marathon.  If you're reading this blog for the first time, you may not be aware I've recently decided to break up large donations to have fewer items in each picture, fewer pictures per post so you all can better see the wonderful donations, AND in order to aid having a post more regularly (daily being the goal).  Many thanks Joyce.
Wonderful hats, scarves, and a cowl in the upper left of this picture.  Hats of many sizes and colors.  AND what a wonderful plus that you tagged all your hats with size!  Doing so speeds up the process for me in separating donations into the right bag for kids or adults, men or women etc.  Additionally, it speeds up time for the many big hearted volunteers to who help staff the various shelters.  The quicker items leave my house and get to the volunteers, the quicker they're in the hands of the homeless and others in need.  

Thank you Joyce, look forward to seeing you here often on Bridge and Beyond.  Please keep up the good work.

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?
