Knitting warms Heads and Hands of Ohio's Homeless

 Put your hands together folks and help me clap.  You know, if you visited this blog before how excited I get when we get mittens...you know I clap, you know I dance in the street.  Our good friend, Sandra R for the sunny state of Florida has the gift many of us would love to have...that is to be able to know mittens.  She's knitted mittens of nice darker colors in sizes appropriate for adult men and women, and for the kiddos!  Awesome!! 
She's also knitted a variety of sizes, colors, and styles of hats to warm cold heads in need.   Special thanks Sandra for always tagging your hats and mittens with size, truly it is such a big saver both here for me and once things arrive at the various shelters and or passed along to our friends Rae and or Lynn to distribute for us, directly.

**Please check in daily folks, and remember larger donations are separated in order to have fewer pictures per post, fewer items in a picture so you can see the lovely items better, and to help us with a blog post daily......which you've heard me say repeatedly helps the blogs placement, which in turn helps us reach more helping hands in order to warm more people in need.**

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?
